COMMUNITY SERVICE PROGRAMS  

 
TERM 2 SERVICE PROJECT

Thailand Missions Trip

Each year our Year 10 students head off to Thailand on a two week trip as part of the Schools Careers / Community Service program. Students work with Orphanage’s and other NFP organisations; by lending a hand with painting, planting, construction and other areas. Lives are forever changed when students return and are much more appreciative of the blessed lives we get to live in Australia.

TERM 3 SERVICE PROJECT

Run for Relief

What a great program! Students either walked or ran around the Lysterfield lake to raise funds in support of one of their projects in Thailand. The response and level of enthusiasm on the Run for Relief day was particularly exciting.

A total just on $3000 was raised, a fantastic team effort that will go towards serving the community!

This term students from all campuses have been making gifts and hampers to bless people in our local community.

Below is a short clip of the song 'The Christmas Blessing' which you may want to use with your group to introduce the project.


 
A few ideas the group had were:

  • Christmas Hampers – aged care homes, Transit, Andrew’s Centre, school families, families from other schools,
  • New baby hampers – local hospitals
  • Perform at aged care homes. 

Other Service Programs

Term 2 Project

40 Hour Famine

Students give up food, TV or other luxuries to fundraise and contribute to World Visions 40 Famine program. As a School, Maranatha is the programs biggest supporter and has been for many years.

Term 4 Project

Local Community Clean Up

Year 9 students were involved in various community service projects in the local community. Students worked well together tidying yards, building vegetable gardens, fixing fences and mowing lawns. Much was achieved in the hour and a half and the recipients were blessed by the completed projects.
