Chaplaincy program



​Hello, my name is David Larkin, commonly known around the school as Chappy Dave. I would like to welcome you to Buderim Mountain State School.

My role at Buderim is a fun and flexible one, which includes some of the following:

  • Offering pastoral care and support to students and families.
  • Running lunchtime activities including the ‘Chappy Room’.
  • Running social emotional lessons in the classroom setting.
  • Joining in sporting days, special lessons, excursions, camps and walk to school Wednesdays.
  • Being an active role model for positive behaviour and values to students.
  • Giving a listening ear and advice when asked for it.
  • Being a friend to all at the school.

If you are interested more in the role of a School Chaplain, you can visit or call SU QLD on (07) 363 2222.
