Thank you to Ms Beeftink and Ms Franchetto for your organisation of the service, and to Mrs Ameduri for working with our choir. No.21that I announce that our chaplain, Bev Fruin, has CHAPLAIN: It is withNewsletter great pleasure returned to our school for the remainder of the year and for all of 2016. The Minister for Education, Peter Collier, announced that the state government will fund chaplains to schools who had previously applied the National School Chaplaincy programme and were unsuccessful; we were one of those schools. Mrs Fruin will continue her previous chaplaincy role and has ideas on how to further develop her role. No commitment has been made to provide State funding for In School Chaplains for 20172018.
