Meet Mr Trevor Sykes – our new Junior School Chaplain
I am new to the chaplaincy role at Swan Christian College Junior School in 2018. It is a great honour and privilege to be able to work with the students, families and staff in the school community. I am very excited about the role and I am looking forward to many exciting times ahead as we share the journey of the junior years together.
My role will initially entail building relationships with the students and becoming familiar with their environment, to position myself to offer the best level of support possible. I will work closely with the teachers and be a regular presence in the classroom, as well as in the playground, so that I can connect with the students in their day to day settings. As needs arise, I’ll meet with students one-on-one and in groups to work through the various challenges they may be facing. I hope to provide a strong presence at assemblies, class excursions, camps and other activities throughout the year.
I have a background in pastoral work and coaching, and I’m keen to combine these two passions to create a safe, enjoyable and rewarding space for students to grow in their faith and confidence, to be the best they can be. Chaplaincy is a ministry of presence and I plan to be available at all times; with an open door and friendly face that is always here to help the students, families and staff at Swan Christian College.
Mr Trevor Sykes
