Christian service groups are a key aspect of the College. They aim to nurture and encourage students’ spiritual growth and equip students with skills that will benefit them across all aspects of their schooling and throughout their lives.

Encouraging students’ spiritual growth

We aim to produce strong, confident, capable young men and women who will be undaunted by challenges they encounter and have the courage to not only stand up but also take action for what they believe.
“Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”
Matthew 25:40

Recognising the needs of others

It is our desire to help our students recognise the needs of others within the College and wider community, and more importantly, respond to and serve those needs. It is our yearning to see a practical out-working of our College core values, beyond the school gate. In the book of Micah, the Bible clearly reminds us of our responsibility to care for others.
“The Lord God has told us what is right and what he demands: “See that justice is done, let mercy be your first concern, and humbly obey your God.”
Micah 6:8
“The words of James call us to act upon our faith by serving His people, reminding us that 'Anyone who doesn’t breathe is dead, and faith that doesn’t do anything is just as dead!'”
James 2:26

Senior School Service Opportunities

Years 9 and 10 students have the opportunity to serve others through fundraising and practical activities for charitable organisations.

The students facilitate the 40 Hour Famine program which helps our students to understand the impact of the Global Food Crisis and how the money they raise by going ‘without’ can make a difference. To raise their money, students attend a launch Dance Party at the College and count down to the beginning of the Famine. Some students raise additional sponsorship funds which allows them to ‘sleep over’ at school on the Friday night.
