School Chaplain (Mr Daniel Bonallack)
A school chaplain plays a crucial role in providing emotional support to students, and the wider school community. They offer guidance, counseling, and pastoral care, fostering inclusivity and understanding among diverse cultural backgrounds. Collaborating with teachers and parents, the chaplain creates a nurturing and inclusive educational community, while tending to the overall well-being and social fabric of the school through their compassionate presence and support during significant life events.
