Our School Chaplain

“Spread love everywhere you go: … Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness in your warm greeting.”
― Mother Teresa

The Chaplain provides pastoral care for students and staff in Boyne Community School and responds to the personal needs of individual students on a day-to-day basis. Students can discuss, in a confidential and supportive environment, any concerns and difficulties they may have. Students are most welcome to drop by the office and chat in a friendly and informal way.

This service is student based and follows through to home and family life particularly with regard to illness, bereavement and loss. She liaises with the Tutors and Year Heads over matters relating to the formation of the students and provides assistance as appropriate. She works with all staff to create a well-balanced school community, involves herself in the life of the school and is present at major events in the student’s school life.

She aims to encourage and foster an awareness of spirituality within the school to provide the students with an opportunity to express their own religious identity, through liturgies, retreats and other religions and non-religious occasions.

The Chaplain works with the school team of Principal, Deputy Principals, Guidance Counsellor, Year Heads and Class Tutors to help all students develop to their full potential.

The full time school Chaplain is Ms Aoife Daly.
