Are You Looking for Cliffside Preparatory School?

If you happen to stumble across this site while searching for Cliffside Preparatory School on Shawnigan Lake in British Columbia north of Victoria British Columbia, Canada I would ask you to look on Facebook in groups or try this link if you have a Facebook page already set up Cliffside Preparatory School to start tracing some of your old school mates. Please don’t email to the address on this site since it’s hardly ever checked and please don’t use Classmates, since it’s a pay for site. I try not to use sites such as those while searching for old school mates.

There are only a few of us on the site that you might know but as your well aware the more people discover the site the more we can trace around the globe.

If you want to see what the place looks like now, I’ve created a Blogspot Site this spring after spending a few hours wandering around the old place which is now a Easter Seals Camp and until 2009 and  had been another private school called Lakeside Prep.

If for some reason you don’t want to join the Facebook Group over privacy concerns, you can always leave a Comment at the bottom of the page and I will receive it and we can go from there.

It is beginning to look like that after Cliffside closed in 1977 that all the records that school had where thrown in the trash, so subsequently the Facebook Group is wanting any former members of Cliffside Preparatory School to submit what they have, anonymously or through the Facebook Group

  1. Tony (Anthony Pitt) says :

    Anyone know if Mr. Hudson and Mr. Eastaugh are still alive?

    • cliffsideprep says :

      Anthony

      Joe Hudson is retired and living in England. Made his fortune working for McDonalds. John Eastaugh is retired and living in Saanichton just north of Victoria. He is on the Facebook page.

      • Mark Hamilton says :

        I was at cliffside the last year it was open I remember a bit about it, some of the names like John Cahill , hillborn, Andrew sappanon , Mark kritz , Bob Ford , Rick sands , Tom tatton , mark hubert , Adrian Hockey, the Vanggmond brothers (who were also at St.Georges the next year like myself) I also remember Hudson and the ass woopings he gave out
        called “Dead meat on the pump handle” I got my fare share of lashes !

        Eastough was a stern teacher but fair, I hope he’s enjoying his retirement.
        The rest of the staff were pretty cool too .
        There’s to many words & stories to tell right now .
        Another time perhaps .

    • cliffsideprep says :

      Tony. Do you have any old photos of Cliffside?

  2. Mark Hamilton says :

    Hey Ian , if you like edit out the part about Hudson , or not publish the whole comment . I kinda went a bit sideways there , and I don’t want to start a hate
    club ! I will not publish this type of rubbish on facebook nor here again .
    I think what you have done with this & the FB site is really quite incredible,
    unfortunately I didn’t save any physical mementos nor photos from my time at
    Cliffside. but I do have memories, Good & Bad .
    I will try to stay to the good.

  3. Hans Van Dorne says :

    Wow, haven’t seen those old photos in decades. Always wondered about some of the old crew..I heard Garry Van Sacker won the lottery in’99
    stopped in and saw the old spot in2000,talked to Tim roberge for about 6 hours
    in Duncan.Said he still sees Herb Roden (Beggs) and Rick Murray on occation.
    I spent half my life in the States,as a pro polo player-horse trainer
    Now living in Kelowna..being a Dad. Be great to hear from anyone I used to know..Hans Van Dorne,on facebook

  4. Michael Cane says :
