Mountain State School is fortunate to have the 2016 Sunshine Coast Australia
Day Citizen of the Year, David Larkin, as our school chaplain four days a week.
Dave, as he is more commonly known, offers pastoral care and support to
students and their families. He also acts as a role model, friend and gives a
listening ear to students who seek his advice.
Dave coordinates lunchtime activities including the ‘Chappy Room,’ facilitates
our Monday Breakfast club, connects community members and students in our
student mentor program, and teaches social-emotional lessons in a classroom
setting. He’s also involved in our Community Kitchen, and joins us at sporting
events, special lessons, excursions, camps and on walk-to-school Wednesdays.
