LINDY - BRINGING HOPE TO YOUNG PEOPLE IN NORTHERN TAS
Hi, my name is Lindy, and I and I am chaplain at a city school (Riverside High School) and a country school (Perth Primary School) and so am blessed to enjoy and celebrate all aspects of our world with those dearest treasures – our children. Growing up in North-West Tasmania I enjoyed exploring agriculture in my first working phase before undertaking my Bachelor of Teaching. Once my children began school, I quickly recognised how many external factors affected a child’s capacity to achieve their God-given potential and my heart longed to encourage and enable those struggling in their journey to wholeness.
The flexibility of being a chaplain allows me to use my strength and passion to inspire and nurture the young treasures we journey beside. I find gardening with students an exhilarating way to break down barriers, inspire contentment, enjoy nature and our senses, and celebrate differences. I work to install joy through a love of singing (choir) and a recognition of our capacity to help others as I explore social justice issues with children. Many find great purpose and joy for their lives through these explorations.
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!
