Sunday movie fundraiser to assist Naracoorte’s school chaplaincy program

The Naracoorte Inter-Church Council will be hosting a movie fundraiser, with the all-ages film Christopher Robin screening at the Naracoorte Town Hall on Sunday September 30 at 2.30pm.

The fundraiser is in aid of some extra hours of paid work for the school chaplains in three of Naracoorte’s public schools (Sandra Vangsness at Naracoorte Primary; John Stayte at Naracoorte South Primary; and Kerry Probert at Naracoorte High).

School chaplains receive Federal Government funds to do approximately nine hours of work per week, but the local chaplains and schools would like more hours. The Naracoorte Inter-Church Council therefore decided raise funds to help give them that extra time at school, assisting students with various issues. These issues may range from something like helping children make friends to helping students who are having a hard time at home.

The idea for the movie fundraiser came from Lindsay Parker, the Treasurer of the Naracoorte Inter-Church Council. The Chairman of the Naracoorte Inter-Church Council is Errol Schenscher, and the council itself is comprised of members from eight churches in Naracoorte. These churches include Lutheran, Catholic, Anglican, etc.

Each year the Naracoorte Inter-Church Council works together to raise money to extend local schools’ chaplaincy program. As well as having fundraisers, they are financially supported by individuals, families, various religious and non-religious organisations, and the Naracoorte Lucindale Council through a shareholder program.

The Naracoorte Inter-Church Council is a not-for-profit organisation.

The admission price for Christopher Robin is $15 for adults, and $12 for children aged three and over. There will be an afternoon tea held after the movie.

Tickets are available from TerryWhite Chemmart, the Naracoorte Herald’s reception and at the door on the day.
