With changes at schools this year Kirste and Dan have not been able to head out for Free Coffee Fridays. So instead, they had a couple of the chaplains join them in the studio!
School chaplaincy leader Darlene Herbert has worked at YouthCare for 22 years! This year she says chaplains are planning creative ways to maintain connection and community through online learning. “We have just received a plan some chaplains are doing. She’s got a plan to do Lego masters with them online.”
Area chaplain Tim Wood previously worked at Morley Senior High school. As a chaplain, he says it is important to be present and empathetic. “Students are constantly being passed from adult to adult and they don’t have that individual connection…Taking off your own lenses and see life through their lens.”
