Message from the Chaplains
Our name’s are Alexia and Andrew, we have the fantastic privilege of being the chaplains here at Bardon State School. Our role is to provide social, emotional and spiritual support to students, families and staff at the school.
We 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. On Friday mornings before school Alexia serves toast in the morning muster area, we also facilitate community building events.
We are available to offer one on one pastoral care, with appointments being made through the school office.
The days we are at the school are different, with Andrew here on a Thursday and Alexia is here on Friday.
We look forward to meeting you.
Alexia Hoffman and Andrew Hazlewood
