BBQ SUCCESS FOR MISSION SERVICE LEARNING
THANKS so much to everyone who supported our fund raising effort at our Bunnings BBQ Scoresby. We raised over $2500 from over 800 sausages cooked and sold. This achieved just over $1500 profit for us to help train our students and teachers to serve their community better. Thanks to all who helped and prayed as the weather was clear enough to keep Bunnings very busy. Thanks again!
Thanks to all parents, staff and students who participated in the Bunnings BBQ for our Mission Service Learning Activities! A big thank you to Sonia, Andrew, Marina and also to Peter for the amazing sign!
WALKATHON RAISES MUCH NEEDED FUNDS
FOR ST ANDREWS
We would like to thank the College community for their support and fun that was had at the 'Walkathon' on last day of Term 3. There was continuous walking around the College grounds from 10 am until 3 pm with some classes doing many laps together. Mr Farmer and Mrs Hughes would have to get the “Most Laps Done" award by conducting all their classes while continuously walking around the college.
A big thanks must be expressed to the many volunteers and to Tim Burger & Lesley Goh who organised over 30 parents who helped throughout the day. The volunteers were used all over the grounds by supervising where students were to walk, keeping oranges and cups of water available as students walked by the station and assisting with lunch time fun on the basketball courts.
The event raised close to $5000 which will be put to a much needed requirement within the College.
Farewell & Food Fest
We had good weather for our recent Food Fest Day which was enjoyed by all those attending. Famileis were able to catch up with friends have a chat and enjoy the food and activities in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
We also farewelled a long serving member of the St Andrews Christian College Commmunity, Liz Romney. Liz has run the PFA Second Hand Uniform Shop for 30 years and we are thankful for her dedicated service and we wish her well as she starts a new chapter in her life interstate.
