Doing it for the kids
Sandgate Pest Control have been proud sponsors and supporters of SU Chaplaincy for many years, partnering closely with some of the local School Chaplains in the 4017 area.
SU QLD chaplains, or ‘chappies’, provide spiritual and emotional support to school communities. They are in the prevention and support business: helping students find a better way to deal with issues ranging from family breakdown and loneliness, depression and anxiety. SU Chappies provide a listening ear and a caring presence for children and young people in crisis and those who just need a friend.
Sandgate Pest Control has been partnering with Sandgate State School and Shorncliffe State School over the past 4 years. Chappy Sam and Chappy Kara get alongside our kids, teachers and families, creating a safe and caring culture within our schools. Right now, our chappies are serving more than 400,o00 Queensland students in both primary and high schools. “Our kids are faced with many more challenges these days: access to information, social media and technology. It is so important to see all of our kids connected and supported and reaching their potential” says, Louise Howarth, Managing Director of Sandgate Pest Control.
