The College Chaplains provide pastoral care support for all members of the College community. The College has two full-time Chaplains.
Referrals for students to engage in formal one to one counselling appointments come via teachers, parents or the students themselves. For Primary aged students parents are required to sign a referral form for ongoing one to one pastoral counselling appointments. All appointments are made through the Chaplains.
Other areas where the College Chaplains are involved are:
Coordinating outreach into the College
Organising special events such as the Mother Daughter evening and Dads' and Lads events
Contributing to class devotions
Mrs Brianne Burn is the female Chaplain at Kingsway Christian College. Brianne worked as a Chaplain in two government Primary schools before coming to Kingsway. In addition to working as Chaplain, Brianne also holds a Graduate Diploma of Education – Primary.
Brianne is excited to continue to work with primary school aged children here at Kingsway and is looking forward to building strong relationships with our Year 7s-12s, as she feels there is a great need to support adolescents and teens as they navigate through what can be a very challenging and busy time in their lives.
Brianne and her husband keep busy with three children of their own, who currently attend their local High school and Primary school. Brianne has a passion for health and wellbeing, and hopes to make a positive impact on the Kingsway Community.
Mr Luke Wiseman is the male Chaplain at the College and is partly funded by the Australian Government Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations under the National School Chaplaincy and Student Welfare Programme.
Luke is excited about this chapter in his life. Previously a Youth Pastor & Chaplain he is continuing his God given gifts and passion to help young people through their triumphs and struggles as Chaplain here at Kingsway.
Luke loves Kingsway and he is grateful for the impact that the school had in his life when he was a student here from K - 12. He hopes all students can experience all that the school has to offer and that he can have an incredible impact on the lives of the students at the College.
