School Chaplaincy Program

Establishing a School Chaplaincy Program

Public schools in Western Australia are not required to have a chaplain.

School chaplaincy services are designed to form part of the already existing wellbeing and pastoral care services provided within the school community.

Chaplains can only be employed by external Service Providers and appointed to public schools.  Schools do not employ their own chaplains.

It is up to individual schools as to whether they adopt an opt in or an opt out process for inclusion of students in the school’s chaplaincy program.
