Serving Our Community

Suncoast Christian College is committed to teaching our students the value of having a servant heart, particularly to those people in our community whose lives have been altered through tragic personal circumstances and hardships.

 


Community Service

Locally our students are currently volunteering at community service organisations like Suncoast Care based in Nambour. Suncoast Care is a thriving co-op food outlet that provides affordable groceries to many families in our community. Suncoast Care, a ministry of Suncoast Church, also provides emergency relief for families, funds the Chaplaincy programs at both Woombye and Palmwoods State Schools, provides weekly breakfasts in Quota Park for the homeless and offers a three course meal two nights a week for families in need.

Students are involved in a range of activities including packing shelves, welcoming customers and customer service. We believe this is a great opportunity for our students to serve the local community, gain some work experience and have exposure to some of the challenges that life brings.

Christian & Community Service at Suncoast also includes:

Local Community

Locally our students volunteer in their community by serving at Suncoast Care based in Nambour. Through this, our students gain work experience and are exposed to some of the challenges that life brings. Students also participate in various charity fundraising activities throughout the year.0

International Mission

Senior Suncoast students have the opportunity to travel to Thailand for our annual mission trip. Students are challenged to step out of their comfort zone in faith and experience fellowship of different cultures brought together by Christ.

Outback Mission

As a part of our strategic plan to involve students in ministry in rural areas, the College is continuing on its mission to remote properties in Western Darling Downs area in the last week of Term 1 209. This expands the College’s Mission opportunities to include an inland focus and to expose our students to some of the challenges that families are facing in the Bush.

  • Suncoast is the kind of school that not only gives you an amazing education but lays every opportunity under the sun at your feet, whether you're an artsy performer or drawer, a sporting champion or just want to get involved in a team. If you're into chess club, robotics and 3D printing or if you'd prefer to spend you're lunches coordinating fundraisers, cooking snags on the barbie for your peers and running a mass dodgeball game against the teachers. I was lucky enough to go on one of the mission trips they offer and spend two weeks in Thailand and it was the most life changing and special experience. The trip, the musicals, the days in A-block fighting over the aux cord, the bake sales and especially the teachers, are all attributes that shaped me into the person I am today. When you come to Suncoast, you're not just getting a school, but you're getting a whole family for life.
