Celebrating Chappy’s Week at Noosaville State School

19/05/2017

 

​I could hear Lachlan W say ‘could I have one more please?’ and ‘ I love honey on mine’ from Mitchell P, as I followed the smell of Pancakes to the NSS Multipurpose area.  The Pancake breakfast for Chappy’s Week was in full swing. Volunteers Emma, Michael, Jade, Sam, Elizabeth and Peter were busy  flippin and serving NSS students  fresh warm pancakes. How delicious on a cool Noosaville morning! 

The Chappy Pancake breakfast helps to create awareness and funds for the school Chaplaincy program. NSS mum Bec said ‘that the NSS Chaplain Michelle has helped her family a lot, that Michelle is patient and understanding and the kids love to see her. Her daughter says that Michelle listens and has helped her with friendships.’ 

 

The NSS School Chaplain Michelle said “Chappy week highlights the need for fundraising to fund the cost of this service and this morning is a lot of fun”, Peter  Chapman  the Chair of the Chaplaincy services in Schools said ‘the Chappy is  essential for the children to have a go to, that is independent to the school, and to be there  to help the kids and their families. The Chappy is a front line service for helping .’

Mary McMahon  reflected  about the current focus Caring Program with the students at Assembly and the word of the moment - Empathy. Mary expressed that Michelle uses a lot of empathy with the children to best support and help the NSS families.
