CHRISTINE - Smithton HS and Circular Head CS
CHRISTINE - BRINGING HOPE TO SMITHTON
My name is Christine, and I am the school chaplain at Smithton High
School and Circular Head Christian School. I have always been involved in pastoral care in our church, and enjoy supporting and encouraging others. Over 10 years ago I felt I was being led into chaplaincy work, and have been at Smithton High ever since. I have also recently taken on the role at Circular Head CS.
In my role as school chaplain, I am involved with students through offering pastoral care, emotional and social support, and running programs to promote
self-confidence, value and worth. Interacting with students, staff and parents as appropriate and as requested, I am helping to build a strong school
community and build broader links with the local community.
The aim of SU Tas is to help young people and their families have hope for the
future. As I work in partnership with other professionals and organisations, we
are assisting young people to address issues in their lives that can prevent them
achieving their full potential and give them hope in the years ahead.
The work of chaplaincy will only continue with the support of the community and generous Tasmanians. Your gift will help support my work and school chaplaincy into the future!
