Our Anglican Identity


The Chaplain is responsible for leading the spiritual life of the School. 

The role includes providing spiritual and pastoral support for members of the school community, involving students, staff and parents.

The Chaplain is available as a listening ear in the joys and tribulations of life, or for spiritual guidance and support when need arises within the community.

Our Chaplain provides care for past and present students at both the Frederick Irwin Anglican School Halls Head Campus and Meadow Springs Campus by supporting them during times of need providing a visible Christian presence in the Frederick Irwin Anglican School community.
