I've had the opportunity to meet a couple of our State politicans since I've been a chaplain.
Firstly, our state premier, Colin Barnett, over 18months ago at my first school. He is very supportive of the role chaplains play within the school community, and spoke at the 40th anniversary of chaplaincy and CRE in schools within WA, last year.
Then a couple of weeks ago the Minister for Police and Road Safety, Liza Harvey.
I don't envy any politicians, the pressure on their time and the tight-rope they must walk as there is always somebody that isn't happy about any decision that is made.
