Restore funding for the Chaplaincy Program for WA schools.

I am President of the P&C at West Morley Primary School. We have just found out that we have lost funding for the school chaplain. This position is vital to our school community, providing much needed support to kids at risk.
Teachers time is already stretched because of continued funding cuts to schools. If teachers spend their time providing care and support to kids in need, it diverts them away from teaching kids like mine and yours.
School chaplains are in the prevention and rescue business. They help students find a better way to deal with issues ranging from family breakdown and loneliness to drug abuse, stress and anxiety.
The recently announced funding cuts to the Chaplaincy Program are unacceptable. This has affected nearly 100 schools in WA.
