Pastoral Care


Our School Chaplaincy Service


Chaplaincy is a well-accepted and valued pastoral care model in many parts of society (e.g. defence forces, sports, industry, hospitals etc).


The Chaplaincy Service at this school is provided by a Pastoral Care Worker, on behalf of the local combined Christian community, employed by Schools Ministry Group (SMG).


The Chaplaincy Service is funded by the National School Chaplaincy Program (NSCP), administered by the Department for Education, with additional contribution from the local community.


The Lyndoch School communities Pastoral Care Worker is Jo Herrmann.
