Message from the Chaplain
My name’s Daniel Baxter, I have the fantastic privilege of being the chaplain here at Bardon State School. My role is to provide social, emotional and spiritual support to studnts, families and staff at the school.
I run life skills sessions in classes which assist students in understanding bullying behaviour, how to navigate different situations students face in the playground as well as aiming to build empathy and resilience. I serve toast on Monday mornings, and facilitate community building events, such as pancake breakfasts, mother child and father child evenings.
I am available to offer one on one pastoral care, and am available for appointments made through the office.
I look forward to meeting you.
