Chappy's Chat

Gidday! My name is Elton Thompson and I am looking forward to finishing off my 3rd year as a Chaplain here at Meringandan State School. Prior to starting here this term I was the full time Chaplain at Gatton State School since January 2013.
So who is Elton Thompson? I have been a husband and a stepdad to 3 children since June this year. I have been working with children and young people for around 13 years in various roles ranging from a church based community youth worker in Caboolture and Deception Bay and a Sports Centre manager/youth support worker in Normanton.
I have worked with a wide range of young people including and not limited to at risk youth, youth gangs, Indigenous youth and young people who just need someone who wants to spend time with them and has a listening ear.
As a Chaplain it is my role to support students, staff and families with social, emotional, and spiritual needs. As you get to know me you will find that I work without an agenda and am non judgmental. I will be available on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 8.00am – 3.30pm.
