SARA - BRINGING HOPE TO YOUNG PEOPLE
My name is Sara, and I am the school chaplain at Summerdale and St Leonards Primary Schools. As a student I attended eight schools in three countries, so I know what it’s like to find education hard. After years working in office administration, I moved to chaplaincy and I love connecting with students and families.
Change and not fitting in are common experiences. But sadly, some kids do not have a safe place to deal with these struggles. I strive to provide a safe space where students can share their struggles. Each person is valuable and important in the sight of God, whether they know that or not. It is my hope that each person realises their worth and talents and has the confidence to walk in them.
The aim of SU Tas is to help young people and their families have hope for the future, as a world without hope will destroy us all. People of faith hold the greatest hope, and together we can share that with students.
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!
