St Paul’s is an Anglican school, founded on the ethos and values of the Anglican Church.
We are committed to valuing all people and promoting respect for others, particularly those of different racial, ethnic, faith or cultural traditions, as well as those who are marginalised in society.
The School provides opportunities for worship and growth in understanding the Christian life, whilst respecting each person’s right to their own belief system.
The Christian Studies curriculum aims to:
- Introduce and familiarise students with the essence of the Christian faith
- Explore the Biblical narrative, the person of Jesus and the story of salvation history
- Enable students to engage in discussions of Australian culture and critique it in the light of Christian values
- Explore contemporary ethical issues, ethical decision-making, ethical perspectives and moral viewpoints in religious traditions
Regular chapel services provide opportunities for students to experience and participate in a worshipping community. Students also have the opportunity to join the student Christian groups. Our Easter and Christmas Carol services bring the whole campuses together and our School Anniversary service gathers the entire student body in celebration and thanksgiving.
The appointment of school Chaplains is made by the School, in consultation with the Bishop of Gippsland. Our school has close links with the local parishes of St Paul’s Warragul and St James’ Traralgon and our students are encouraged to be active participants in local and global community service.
Our Chaplains are:
- Reverend Daniel Lowe – Senior Chaplain
- Mr Glen Treble – Traralgon Campus Chaplain
- Mrs Deana Board – Warragul Junior School Chaplain
