We have a full and rich school life at St Andrew’s Christian School with many wonderful events happening within our school community.
Every year our students participate in athletics, cross-country and swimming carnivals with students who qualify being given the opportunity to progress to zone and then state levels. The most wonderful aspect of our carnivals is the sense of community that exists as Kindergarten through to Year 12 students spend the day together encouraging each other and having fun.
Indonesian language and culture is being taught to our Primary and Secondary classes. One of our parents, Maria Waterson, is teaching the classes with our regular teachers. Maria was born in Indonesia and has proven to be an enthusiastic member of staff. The school is also supporting an orphanage in Indonesia Mamo Sayang with our School Chaplain, Mick Schilling and Principal, Mac Lindsay visiting the orphanage this year.
We are hoping to send mission teams to work in the orphanage and school on a regular basis.
Our school has been selected to be part of the Federal Government’s School Literacy Program. The Program includes intense training in Literacy Development for both the Principal and our Head of Primary. The school has been able to purpose the best testing and diagnostic tools.
