National Schools Chaplaincy Program

The National Schools Chaplaincy Program (NSCP) is an initiative funded by the Commonwealth Government to provide chaplaincy services in government, Catholic and independent schools throughout Australia. The purpose of the NSCP is to support the wellbeing of Australian school students through the provision of pastoral care services and strategies to support the wellbeing of the broader school community. These may include volunteering activities, breakfast clubs, excursions, lunchtime activities and parent/carer workshops.

For NSW independent schools, the application window for the next round of the NSCP is from Friday 23 August to Friday 20 September 2019. There will be one application round for the 2020-2022 calendar years, so schools approved to participate will be funded for three years.

All NSW independent school principals have been sent an email inviting them to submit an application for the National Schools Chaplaincy Program 2020 – 2022 before 20 September 2019.
