I served with the Tasmania Police for over 39 years including two years with the AFP. I had worked with the principal at Brighton Primary School in ‘youth justice’ and ‘youth at risk’ roles, and he drew my attention to chaplaincy. Given I’d had a long relationship with SU through camps and a strong desire to encourage young people and their families, I decided to apply.
I provide support to Breakfast Clubs in all my schools. The generosity of supporters allows me to spend time listening to students and helping them work through issues which are troubling them.
The generosity of supporters allows me to spend time listening to students and helping them work through issues which are troubling them. In partnership with parents and teachers, I provide help now, and hope for the future. SU has connected with thousands of young people over the years, and I am grateful for the opportunity to continue that legacy.
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!
