Service to Others
Community spirit is one of the intangibles that sets Glennie apart from other schools. Whether is it helping each other, or rallying to help after a local or global disaster, Glennie girls have a certain empathy that is inspiring. This spirit of caring is a quality that leads Glennie girls to continue to help others in their adult lives.
There are many ways in which Glennie girls help others through community service and fundraising. Girls in all year levels are encouraged to support initiatives that raise awareness and provide support for people in need.
Many of these initiatives are organised by student groups with the whole School and the Glennie community always showing their support. Student committees are often the driving force, but it is not uncommon for an individual girl to identify a need, and act upon it.
In addition to raising funds for charities, girls develop a sense of empathy through visiting nursing homes and working with community service groups within Toowoomba.
Special days are set aside to provide awareness and support for a number of charities, community service organisations and other campaigns. Each year, our girls support a variety of charities:
- Australian Cancer Council
- Breast Cancer Research
- Bush Ministry Fund
- Care Flight
- Clean Up Australia
- Interact (Rotary International)
- Pyjama Foundation
just to name a few . . .
