School Chaplain

Father Gift Makwasha is the full time Chaplain at St George’s Anglican Grammar School. He is responsible for supporting the social, emotional and spiritual wellbeing of students and staff regardless of their faith or beliefs. The School Chaplaincy Service complements our many existing pastoral care programs.

My calling is to inspire young people to realise their full potential.  I firmly believe that their high school years should be the very best days of their lives and it is my hope to support all students to seize the many opportunities presented here and to thrive in their time within the St George’s School Community.
