School chaplaincy services aim to promote student and school community well-being. Given the community interest in chaplaincy services in government schools, it is important that research inform future developments to maximize the potential benefits of chaplaincy services to schools. In this study, 68 chaplains in the Australian state of Tasmania described and shared views on their work through the completion of an anonymous online survey. The findings present a picture of the nature, strengths and challenges of chaplaincy in Tasmanian government schools from the perspective of chaplains themselves. The results are summarized, several implications are identified, and directions for future research are explored.
