Pastoral Care

spiritual and emotional growth

For Primary Students

The ethos of Noosa Christian College is to inspire and lead students into a relationship with God. We believe that each student is precious because they are God’s individual creation with a unique purpose for their lives. As such, our College is committed to providing a variety of opportunities and support structures that facilitate spiritual and emotional growth during the important early years of development.

There are opportunities during both class time and across combined activities on campus for prayer, mentoring, demonstration of values and shared worship/praise. Our class teachers are actively interested in the nurture of your child, and our College Chaplains are able to support individuals through additional services outside of class time.

 

Pastor Jacob Ugljesa and Pastor Esther Meale are our College Chaplains. They work in the Primary and Secondary areas with teaching staff and are involved in organising and providing a range of services and activities including, Bible Studies, Counselling Support, Chapel Programs and our ‘Buddy System’.

Each week a Chapel service includes music, singing, a guest speaker and fun activities which bring the Bible to life. Students are encouraged to understand and model values (such as self-control, kindness, forgiveness) which can make a positive difference in the community.
