Christian College is a key provider of Christian based education in the Geelong and surrounding community. Approaching its 35th anniversary, it is timely for the College to draw together with past and current families and the wider community in celebration of its history and in planning for the future. For many years Christian College has supported the enrolment of students from families with disadvantaged backgrounds and offered support to those experiencing hardship. Suffice to say, such families have enriched the culture of our College and allowed us to reflect the love of Jesus in our Christian mission. The Christian College Foundation is being established to provide a funding source independent of student fees which will be used for such purposes and to fund new initiatives locally and globally which enhance the educational program for our students.
College families, both past and present are invited to be involved in the Foundation together with community leaders, educators and philanthropists in the Geelong area.
The satisfaction of enabling many talented local students to share the advantages of a Christian College education is reward in itself. The College Foundation proudly continues the College tradition as expressed in the original College Prospectus - ‘Christian College Geelong – a balance of care and curriculum for today… and tomorrow.’
In preparation for this significant occasion, we are inviting members of the Christian College community to become a member of the group to be known as the ‘Friends of the Foundation’. All interested in becoming members of the group are invited to attend an information session on Wednesday 13th August at 7:30pm in the Senior School Library.
To RSVP your attendance for this information session, or for further information regarding this special occasion, please contact Mrs. Jess Maddock at the Major Events Office – Email: firstname.lastname@example.org | Phone: 5241 1899 by Friday 8th August.
We commend this worthy endeavor to our College families and encourage you to support it by attending the inaugural Foundation Dinner.
