Jerrabomberra Public School has been fortunate to have a Federal Chaplaincy Program since 2008. At Jerrabomberra, this is called ourGLAD program (Good Living and Development).
The program provides the school with a pastoral helper two days a week. A pastoral helper works on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
The chaplain runs a variety of programs during the day including GLAD Space at lunchtime for alternative non-playground activities, Boys' Shed, drumming classes, classroom support services, special events for parents and students and scripture class organisation at the end of each term.
Any participation in these activities is voluntary on the part of students. The chaplaincy service operates on a self-referral basis and is open to all students and parents.
