Mission Program

Annandale strives to provide a place where faith can be put into action and where students can develop life-long habits of thoughtful action towards others through its service and mission program.

A range of service opportunities is built into the fabric of College life, both informally and formally. We are keen to be good stewards of our facilities and resources and, therefore, litter pick-up should not be viewed as punishment but as an opportunity to serve. We value one another’s well-being so we utilise a buddy system to care for and encourage new or younger students. We esteem servant leadership so our Senior students volunteer in other areas of the College. We want to model hope and compassion to the wider community so we commit annually to Compassion, Jump Rope for Heart, World Vision, MS Readathon, Relay for Life, Samaritan’s Purse Christmas Child Appeal and regular acts of service for the needy and elderly throughout the year and specifically during ‘service learning week’ in Term 4.

We also take seriously the Great Commission and seek out practical and age-appropriate ways to share the good news of Jesus Christ with the wider community. Through a partnership with YWAM Reef To Outback, the College participates in two mission outreach teams. The Youth Adventures program to Palm Island (or other indigenous community in North Queensland or the Northern Territory) in the July holidays is open to students in Years 8 to 10 and students in Years 11 and 12 are encouraged to volunteer with the Medical Ship team to Papua New Guinea.
