The Federal Government’s investment in the National Schools Chaplaincy Program (NSCP) has proven effective, according to a study undertaken by McCrindle Research.
In the “2016 National School Chaplaincy Snapshot” McCrindle surveyed Chaplains associated with the National Schools Chaplaincy Associationand found 2,200 Chaplains across Australia who are involved in over 18,000 formal conversations every week with students, parents & teachers. Every term chaplains deliver over 37,000 program sessions.
The stereotypical view of a chaplain as a crusty old clergyman has also been shattered, with women chaplains outnumbering men by a ratio of 2:1 and the average age being only 44.
Generate Ministries is the principal Chaplaincy provider to NSW Public Schools, having been invited to partner with over 220 schools across NSW.
