School Chaplain



Pastoral Care

Pastoral care of students at Emmanuel Christian Community School is an integral part of the ‘whole person education’ offered. Every staff member is expected to provide pastoral care. The care is based on a deep respect and love for the dignity and uniqueness of each individual child, created in the image of God; wonderfully and uniquely designed to fulfil their God given potential.

Psalm 139:13-14 (NIV)

‘For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.’

We believe by providing a nurturing environment, a sense of belonging, security and wellbeing is created allowing students to grow in their dignity, worth and ability to achieve their potential.
