Since 2006 REAL has received and managed Government funding allowing for a Chaplaincy role at Richmond River High, Lismore High and Kadina High Schools. In 2015 due to more schools seeking funding in NSW, the funding was reduced to only one day per week for chaplaincy in each High School. We currently have one Chaplain that works across all three public High Schools.
The schools apply for this funding, and nominate REAL to be the funding manager on behalf of the school and the government. REAL also acts as a funding manager for a Chaplaincy only role at Woodenbong Central School.
