The Chapel of St Mark at the entrance to the campus is a prominent reminder that Hale is an Anglican school. Yet Hale School is accepting of all faiths, sharing an understanding of different religions and cultural beliefs through Religious and Values Education classes.
Hale was founded by Bishop Matthew Blagden Hale and continues his Christian values. Our Chaplains advocate, support and develop our Anglican identity within the school community.
All Hale students attend chapel services as part of their regular timetable, doing so in year levels about four times a term. We see Chapel as a community activity first and foremost, and all students are part of the Hale community.
The Chapel of St Mark is also available to Old Haleians and their children for baptisms, confirmations, weddings and funerals by arrangement with the Chaplain.
The Hale community is warmly invited to attend our Family Chapel Services twice a term. They generally begin at 6.00pm and those gathered are welcome to join us for a light supper afterwards.
The Chapel of St Mark is a place of unequivocal welcome and belonging. A place where we come to be still, worship and hear a word of affirmation.
Father Thomas Couper, School Chaplain
