My name is Tania Britton and I'm the new Chaplain here at Cloncurry State School P–12.
A little about myself. I was born in Longreach and called it home for many years. Following this, I moved to the Sunshine Coast to study Sport and Exercise Science at the University of Sunshine Coast. After working in the sporting industry and working with youth for over 9 years, I thought it would be great if I could link sport and working with young people together. So, I decided to become a School Chaplain.
I am so thankful for this opportunity that I have been given to serve not only the students and staff at Cloncurry State School P–12—but also, the whole community.
As a chaplain at Cloncurry State School P–12 I am here to contribute to the social, emotional and spiritual wellbeing of all students, regardless of age, race, gender, faith or beliefs.
The chaplaincy role includes:
- Organising Flash Friday's Breakfast every Friday, supplying a more fulfilling breakfast in a fun and welcoming environment. Thanks to Glencore Ernest Henry for being our major sponsor for Flash Friday's.
- The SWAG Hub Coffee Cart was an initiative that started in March 2019 and it involves providing coffee for parents, community members and staff within school on Mondays and Fridays. The SWAG Hub can also be hired out with a Barista for events within the community. All proceeds go towards The Chaplaincy Program or other nominated groups within the school, such as (student council, senior formal and school camp fees).
- Providing sporting and fun activities throughout each term for students, teachers and the community to be involved in.
- Providing social, emotional, educational and community development within Cloncurry.

I am available at Cloncurry State School P–12 between the hours of 8.00am to 3.45pm, Monday to Friday.
