For several years parents from Black Mountain School have offered their children Christian Education (CE) as part of the school curriculum, based on provisions in the Education Act 2004. Consequently, regular CE sessions have been coordinated by the Christian Education In Schools (CEIS) team of the ACT Churches’ Council. These are called ‘God’s Team’ and are delivered by registered and screened volunteers to small groups of Black Mountain students, using resources that take into account their varied abilities.
Our current chaplain is Alistair Buchanan. He works across the cohorts to provide support and encouragement when things were going well, but also a listening ear, caring presence and message of hope when extra support was needed.
