Chaplaincy Program
Clifton High School Chaplaincy program has been running since 1998 and is an integral part of the student support services our school provides.
The Chaplaincy program is specifically tasked to actively and respectfully care for students and staff from a diversity of beliefs and worldviews and supports both students and staff emotionally and spiritually.
The Chaplain also is active as a role model for the students and is involved with the student body to encourage, support and sustain healthy relationships among their peers and families.
Our Current Chaplaincy program incorporates the following activities that do not include religious/spiritual content.
  • Free Milo for students and staff during immunisations as well as select days in the school term.
  • A general appointment where students who are distressed or in need of a break can come and talk with Doug(Our Current Chaplain) 
  • Students are given a Birthday Card on behalf of the school by the Chaplain. These birthday cards are personalized and contain well-wishes from the school community.
  • Various programs to cultivate socio-emotional health among the student body e.g. Friends for Life, Rock and Water etc.
  • Speakers/Bands-Occasionally a Speakers/Bands may be invited to the school to speak on a current issue-Bullying/Relationships/Self-Esteem etc.
Activities within Chaplaincy that include religious/spiritual content and generally require parental permission upon enrolment or during the term  include:
  • Each Wednesday morning before school the Chaplain helps facilitate a prayer meeting open to the school community.
  • The Tuesday “Lunch Group”-Where students can have fun and engage relevant teenage issues as well as hearing Christian ideas on related topics/as well as a time for those wanting to know more about Christianity.
If you’d like any further information on any of the above programs or the school’s Chaplaincy program in general, feel free to contact me at the school on 46974777.
Yours Sincerely
Doug Espie - Chaplain
