Need a Chaplain?
SU School Chaplains are trusted and trained individuals who can help students navigate the pitfalls of life and keep focused on educational outcomes.
SU chaplains provide spiritual and emotional support to school communities. They are in the prevention and support business: helping students find a better way to deal with issues ranging from family breakdown and loneliness, to drug abuse, depression and anxiety.
They provide a listening ear and a caring presence for children and young people in crisis, and those who just need a friend. They also provide support for staff and parents in school communities.
