Rob Ruge

Champion Your Chappy

I'm fundraising for Mackay North State High School (3 days) & Victoria Park State School (2 days)

My name is Rob Ruge. I am Chaplain from Monday to Wednesday at Mackay North SHS and from Thursday to Friday at Victoria Park State School.

I have a heart for supporting kids, youth, families and staff who are struggling to find hope and meaning in their daily lives. I honestly believe that school chaplaincy is an instrument of hope for many who don't receive enough encouragement in life.

Chaplaincy is only partially funded by the government. For the rest of our funding we rely on the community- people like you who believe in our mission of 'bringing hope to a young generation.'

Thank you in anticipation for your generous support 🙂

My Updates

Two Schools, One Chaplain

I'm back again 😃

I was wanting to have separate pages for my two schools but, as both schools come under the banner of the same Local Chaplaincy Committee, you can be assured that any money you give through this site will be allotted to whichever school needs it the most. 

Thankyou to my sponsors

I'm stoked! Thanks to my wonderful sponsors I'm well on the way to reaching my $1000 goal. This support helps me continue in my 3 day capacity at Mackay North High. The NSCP Govt funding covers only about half of that.

In the 3 months I've been here:
  • I have commenced a Bike Club for kids struggling to connect socially
  • We have doubled the number of students accessing Breakfast Club and are about to move from offering breakfast from 3 days to 4.
  • I have participated in the RAGE Program (an anger management program for kids) and are seeing some kids make some positive changes.
  • We have commenced a prayer meeting for staff and students.
Your donation will continue to support this ministry of 'bringing hope to a young generation'.

Thank you to my Sponsors
