The Christian Culture team run assemblies at the School and aim to be an example to students in how to live for God in their everyday life. Several members of the team are involved in Static 149, a student-run group that leads worship in assemblies and other events outside of school. Overall the main focus of this team is to encourage our students to have a relationship with God and to give them the opportunity to express this through daily devotions and worship.
The Fundraising team is passionate about raising money for organisations which support others. They work together to find organisations they believe need support and funds. This is something that is very important to the team and they aim to find different organisations each time. As a team they run school-based events and get as many people as possible involved. The team collects donations, supports other leadership teams and makes contributions where they can. The past two years they have worked with SHE Rescue Homes, Revolution Red and more recently SA Cancer Council to run the Daffodil Day merchandise site in Strathalbyn; so far over $5,000 has been raised for this worthy organisation and the plan is to continue with running this site in future years.
LUNCH TIME ACTIVITIES
The Lunch Time Activities team aims to encourage physical activity, friendly competition and integrate bonding. This year they have successfully conducted several primary, middle and secondary sports competitions to engage the student community. They have extended their branch by conducting the Tyndale Cup with the Salisbury East campus as well as leading the Daffodil Day Cup, a day full of activities which enable the Tyndale Christian School Strathalbyn community to unite and bond through physical activities as well as emphasising important awareness within our School.
The main aim of the Social Justice team is to raise awareness around many social issues that affect teenagers today with a view to outworking strategies to put an end to them in our School and wider community. Some of these issue are anxiety, depression, suicide and bullying. The team has partnered with organisations such as Bullying No Way, Beyond Blue, Think Pink Foundation and Roar Effect to create themed days throughout the school year that are dedicated to each of the issues listed above. The team plays an integral part in making sure that our School is a safe, loving and caring environment for everyone who attends – whether they be student or parent.
