What does your YouthCARE Chaplain do?

A YouthCARE Chaplain cares for the social, emotional and mental wellbeing of students, families and staff. This support helps students achieve their potential, both academically and in their social and family lives. A YouthCARE Chaplain is there for the whole school community, showing people that they really matter.  By building relationships with students, parents and staff to be a trusted listening ear in times of need. Confidentiality is important in all pastoral care situations, unless a situation may hurt them or someone else, in which case, will be reported to the Principal as required by the Department of Education and by law.

My name is Rebecca Birch and I am the School Chaplain at Bramfield Park Primary School (BPPS). My aim is to empower people, helping to build resilience to work through challenges. I am here to help when things aren’t going well, to be a supportive person to encourage, and to offer hope. Referrals to outside agencies can be facilitated where necessary.

At BPPS I run various programs that will help students improve social skills, conflict resolution, inclusiveness, respecting others and learning about themselves.  I understand that everyone is different and I am inclusive of all individuals and their belief systems. Reaching out to those in need by providing services aimed at inspiring hope.
