Why Tyndale - Community
Our Brand Values
Why Tyndale – Community
At Tyndale we actively encourage every person to belong – rather than just attend.
We want everyone to become a part of the community and part of the family.
One of the main choices we face in life is whether we’ll be spectators or participants. This is no different when it comes to schooling – for parents, staff and students.
It’s our hope that you will discover what we provide educationally and also a glimpse of the heart and spirit of our community.
Service opportunities beyond the classroom
Year 9 students are given the opportunity to travel to Normanton, Queensland. This trip is intended to explore the culture of indigenous communities and connect with Gulf Christian College. The team spends time:
- visiting significant attractions in this area
- helping students in classrooms
- preparing for their annual Open Day
- building relationships with staff, students and the community.
We offer a variety of ways for Senior School students to gain an appreciation of different cultures and begin to understand the responsibility we have to those less fortunate than ourselves. The main intention of our mission trips overseas is to discover the realities of life in these developing countries, while making a difference one trip at a time.
The teams undertake capital works projects and contribute financially to support the orphanages that the School is committed to.
The members who have travelled on any of these trips have been greatly impacted by this experience and inspired by the difference that one trip can make to the people we visit.
Our Japanese students have the opportunity to participate in a cultural study trip to Japan every second year, sightseeing and experiencing the Japanese lifestyle.
The students experience first-hand the Japanese culture by:
- staying with host families
- travelling with the Japan Rail Pass
- visiting such places as Kyoto, Himeji, Hiroshima and Tokyo.
The team use the opportunity to gather resources for their Japanese studies. They practice their skills at communicating in Japanese, experience and appreciate a culture quite different from their own, and learn about international travel.
Our students are invited biennially to embark on a trekking adventure along the historical Kokoda Trail. The students walk the trail where Australian and Japanese troops battled in WWII.
