National School Chaplaincy Program (NSCP)

National School Chaplaincy Program (NSCP)

The Australian Government is investing $247 million over four years (2019-2022) to renew the National School Chaplaincy Program (NSCP). While the Australian Government funds the NSCP, states and territories are responsible for its administration.

The NSCP supports the wellbeing of students and school communities through the provision of pastoral care services and strategies delivered by chaplains.

Participating schools are eligible to receive up to $20,280 in metropolitan or regional areas and $24,336 in remote or very remote areas. This funding will support approximately 3000 schools per year to access the services of a qualified chaplain.

La Salle College is currently part of this project and further information can be obtained by contacting Adrian Martino, Vice Principal – Christian Ministry.
