Chaplain funding for Glennie Heights
GLENNIE Heights State School is one of 21 state schools across Queensland to receive funding for a school chaplain and pastoral care worker starting next year.
Education Minister John-Paul Langbroek said 21 schools had been selected to join the Chaplaincy and Pastoral Care Funding Program and would share in the $1 million funding boost announced earlier this year.
"As part of our election commitment, the Newman Government allocated an extra $1 million over four years for the Chaplaincy and Pastoral Care Funding Program," he said.
"Back in September we announced a 10 per cent funding increase for the 128 state schools that were currently receiving funding under the program.
"Now we have identified a further 21 state schools to join the program from the start of next year, with first-time funding to employ chaplains and pastoral care workers in these schools."
