School chaplains make a valuable contribution to the social and emotional well-being of school communities across Western Australia. This might include support and guidance about ethics, values, relationships and social and emotional issues, and helping students engage with the broader community. They are part of the school’s pastoral care team.
The School Chaplaincy Program is voluntary and is supported by the Kinross School Board, Kinross P&C and wider community. YouthCARE is the organisation that our school works with to implement the Chaplaincy Program. Laura Butshiire is our School Chaplain. Laura also works at Clarkson PS. Laura is here every Thursday and Friday and attends many case conference meetings as part of the Student Services team. Parents are invited to contact Laura if they have any issues or concerns they would like to discuss or if they require support in any way. Laura also runs small group or class programs for students on a needs basis.
