SU QLD’s school chaplaincy program has been bringing hope to a young generation for 25 years. Through the generosity of guests over the last 15 years, Frontline has become a significant income stream for this critical initiative.
SU QLD employs over 600 chaplains who work in more than 800 Queensland schools. These ‘chappies’ are a listening ear for young people in need, coming alongside them and supporting them through difficult times. Chaplains have been a vital link in providing support to flood and drought-affected communities and those affected by tragedy and loss. They’re also there to encourage the kids in their triumphs.
This year, more than ever, we need your support to continue the vital work that School Chaplains do. Frontline 2015 will be an evening of marvellous entertainment, excellent company and delicious food. Most importantly, you’ll hear remarkable stories from the ‘frontline’ of our schools.
