Hello, my name is Amy Foote and I'm the Kruger State School Chaplain. I came on board at the beginning of 2021 and have loved getting to know the students and staff here at Kruger State School. I am excited to further foster healthy relationships that will impact students' lives in a positive way. I'm passionate about seeing young people learn about their identity and supporting them to become the best version of themselves. I am currently studying my final subjects of my bachelor's degree in Ministry at Alphacrucis College and intern at Youth Alive (Australia's largest Christian youth movement) in which I have run large teams at national large-scale events and smaller local events. In my free time I volunteer in my church's youth ministry and serve on Sundays as part of the creative team.
My primary goal as a chaplain is to support children and families regardless of what this looks like or how it presents. This could range from helping children in class, group work, spending time with them in the playground, one to one chats and all things in between. The research shows that the generation coming through craves authentic relationships, this kind of atmosphere and community being of upmost importance to provide students with. In order to become the best versions of ourselves we need to learn how to overcome obstacles and bounce-back from setbacks; this is something that I excited to help the students with. I am also passionate about emotionally and practically supporting the older students at the school as they make the transition out of primary schooling and into high school and raising up younger students to be the best role models they can be as they grow.
