Chaplains support school communities through pastoral care of students, teachers, families and the wider local community.
Chaplains fulfill a unique role in school communities:
Rosemary Carter has been the Chaplain at Kew High School since July 2005. Rosemary has qualifications in teaching, social work and theology. You can contact Rosemary by phone or via the school email: email@example.com
Chaplaincy has a long history at Kew High School commencing back in 1986. The role of the Chaplain is supported by the Korus Connect Chaplaincy Committee – Support Group. The committee is made up of school staff, parents and representatives from local Kew churches. The Chaplain is employed through Korus Connect, the committee operates to support the Chaplain, raise funds and promote awareness of the program. Together the Korus Connect Chaplaincy Committee and the school raise all the finances to fund the Chaplaincy at the school.
The second-hand Book and Uniform Shop is one of the wellbeing programs coordinated by Korus Connect Chaplaincy Committee. Operated solely by volunteers the shop sells books and uniform on commission. Families have the opportunity to recycle books and uniforms and purchase second-hand items at 25—75% of retail price. The shop is open one lunchtime per week during school terms. The volunteers also run two evening openings per term and a pre-ordered sale, and open sale day during December each year.
If you would like to know more about school chaplaincy you are welcome to attend a Korus Connect Chaplaincy Committee Support Group Meeting. Meetings run twice per term for approximately one hour and are held in room 6 or via Zoom. Please enter via the High Street Entrance.
