ACCESS ministries have been providing Chaplaincy services to schools since 1955 and are the largest employer of Chaplains in Victoria. Our endorsed Chaplains have the highest standard of professional qualifications and our Student Wellbeing Workers also provide an addition choice of service to school communities.
Currently ACCESS ministries operates 320 Chaplaincy and Wellbeing programs in schools across Victoria, offering pastoral care to over 160,000 young people, school staff and their communities.
- A full time Chaplain
- Assistance with practical items such as clothing and text books
- Counselling on personal issues such as friendship, bullying, school refusal
- The Chaplain also works with staff and the wider community, especially around grief and loss, parenting and other concerns
The college works to build resilience, positivity and self-efficacy in young people. St Helena Secondary College no longer receives Government funding to provide these services, but provide the Chaplain to the college through school subsidy and fundraising by the SWSG so your assistance is much valued.
