Special Needs

National School Chaplaincy and Student Welfare Program (NSCSWP)

Keysborough College has a chaplain at Acacia campus, Michael Enderby and at Banksia campus, Joshua Rodriguez.

Each is an integral part of our Student Welfare Team and deals with day to day matters which influence the health and wellbeing of our students through various programs which they run and with one to one mentoring.

This service is non-denominational and does not contain religious content however some spiritual guidance may be offered only where appropriate. The chaplains are funded through the National School Chaplaincy and Student Welfare Program and are available to all of our students subject to parental request. Consent forms are required to be signed by parents prior to any prearranged one to one mentoring by the chaplain.

Should you have any questions regarding the program and its suitability for your son or daughter, please contact your campus Student Wellbeing leader: At Acacia Louise Feeley, or Banksia, Gillian Green.

Should you have any concerns regarding the chaplaincy service, please contact your campus principal: At Acacia Richard Hastings or Banksia, Patrick Boyd.
