About-

Chaplaincy is a very ancient form of ministry within western Christian society. In Australasia, it is generally accepted in Christian schools and, increasingly, in public schools as well.

This book is offered as an introduction to the art of chaplaincy in the school setting. It outlines the origins and nature of chaplaincy, allowing the reader to explore the contexts within which school chaplains find themselves, and helping them to examine the various chaplaincy models and roles that fit those contexts. It also shows how chaplains can approach and respond to the everyday issues encountered in the school setting: program development, ministry teamwork, pastoral care, working with others, events, worship, spirituality and religious education.

The book acknowledges that chaplains live and work in increasingly secular and multi-faith contexts and shows how this ministry can be exercised in the wider school community.

Written for both the initial education of school chaplains or for their ongoing professional development in public and private school contexts, the book's 12 chapters would neatly fit a university or college semester; or could be used in professional development seminars; or as a self-paced course of study. Each of the 12 chapters has questions for thought or discussion, and each is followed by a case-study for deeper engagement.

This book is also essential reading for principals and school leadership teams.
