Bring out your shovels, mowers, saws, gloves and windex! The year 12s are here to make a difference! This semester, as part of a ‘Social Justice’ unit incorporated in the Religion and Ethics program, the Year 12 cohort assisted various charitable organisations in the community to gain exposure as to how groups are providing services to meet the needs of individuals and families.
GCCC would like to thank the following organisations for partnering with us for this valuable experience for our students. Nexus Care, Embracia Nursing Home, Lifeline Beerwah, Lifeline Kunda Park, Dance-Along and Destiny Rescue.
All the students had an enjoyable experience as they put their hand to many jobs. From folding 700 T-Shirts made by women rescued from slavery, to sorting suitcases ready for display, the students captured what is at the heart and mission of these organisations.
‘Assuredly, I say to you, in as much as you did it to one of the least of these, you did it to Me’. – Jesus (Matthew 25:40)

Glasshouse Christian College Working Bee
Another highlight was a visit from Year 12 students from Glasshouse Christian College who came and helped two Nexus Care families with gardening, mowing, and washing windows. We received a text from one of the very grateful mums after to say “Oh my goodness! I just got home and my yard is transformed! Please tell everybody that worked so hard thank you sooooo very much! I truly am so very grateful for all this help! It’s amazing! Thank you!”
Thank you GCCC for showing people that love and kindness in such a practical way!
