Chaplaincy


Windera State School community provides a chaplaincy program.  Chaplains provide proactive pastoral care for students, staff and parents, helping to create a positive and safe school environment and looking out for those in need.  They support students and the school community through bereavement, difficult family and peer relationships and other life difficulties that confront children and young people. Chappy’s Club is held on Thursday during lunch time where students are able to participate in craft, games and sporting activities. There are team building games after school and Brekky club before school.


Religious Instruction

Religious instruction at Windera State Schools is delivered by the Barambah Ministers Association and is non- denominational. Students in Years 1 – 6 have the opportunity to attend religious instruction. Their participation in Religious Instruction depends on the information given by a parent or carer on enrolment. Religious instruction in our school reflects the school community.
Classes are taught by approved instructors from various faith groups using a curriculum authorised by the Barambah Ministers Association.
Parents can withdraw their children from religious instruction by informing the school in writing. The school provides an alternative program for students who do not attend religious instruction.
