New chaplain for Carlisle's Trinity School
Last updated at 13:00, Wednesday, 04 January 2012
Trinity School in Carlisle welcomes a new chaplain this month.
Jennie Milligan is moving to the city from Birmingham where she has been a youth worker in a large church.
Jennie is only the second chaplain Trinity School – the largest school in the county – has appointed.
The first was Paul Wheelhouse, who left at the end of the summer term in 2010 after joining in 2003.
Headteacher Alan Mottershead has written to parents to say that Jennie will be introduced to pupils through assemblies at the start of the new term.
He explained that her role will be to develop assemblies and collective worship, to make a contribution to pastoral care of students and staff, and to be the link between the school and the wider church in Carlisle.
Jennie is moving to Carlisle with her husband, who is also relocating for work. She starts her new part-time role at the school tomorrow.
Mr Mottershead said: “As a Church of England school we want to make a decent contribution to the pastoral care of our pupils.
“Jennie is not a vicar and we want to dispel a few myths and show that you don’t need to be a member of the clergy to fulfil chaplaincy duties.”
