Brenton Ragless: New SMG Ambassador

Brenton Ragless, Channel 9 Presenter, was announced as the new SMG Ambassador at the SMG 25 Year Reunion held at Unley High School.  The announcement was made to over 350 guests which included current and previous chaplains, SMG staff, Support Group members, and volunteers.

Brenton shared that he had been positively impacted by chaplaincy while growing up.

“I was clueless in school – no clear path in mind – and here I am 22 years later, still no idea on what I’ll be doing next! But I credit my School Chaplain when I was attending Blackwood High School for instilling in me the confidence to embrace life and all its challenges.  The Chaplain was - and still is - a pillar for me: a listening ear, a wise voice and a life teacher, leading me through those fundamental teenage years of personal faith and career development.  I am who I am today thanks to that Chaplain’s influence on my life, which is why I am an Ambassador for SMG.”

SMG is South Australia’s leading school chaplaincy service provider, and offers ongoing pastoral and practical support through chaplaincy services to help young people and school communities discover purpose, value and hope. 

Angela Jolly, Executive Director of Schools Ministry Group said “Today SMG supports over 350 schools across South Australia.  It continues to offer Chaplaincy Services,  seminars and interactive workshops for primary and high school students, as well as contributing to the positive wellbeing of children through innovative programs and initiatives. In addition over 1000 volunteers support SMG through involvement in over 92 Support Groups and by helping in their local schools with breakfast clubs, lunchtime activities, mentoring and many other programs I am thrilled to have Brenton Ragless as an SMG Ambassador.”
