At Sunshine Coast Grammar School, we pride ourselves on looking outward to others and serving our community with passion and purpose. Built on our strong Christian ethos, we believe in delivering faith in action.
A number of opportunities are available to all at Sunshine Coast Grammar which ensure that we are doing all we can to assist those who need a ‘helping hand’. Through giving their time and energy, students throughout the school develop a strong sense of community engagement and build empathy for those less fortunate. From overseas charity organisations to local Sunshine Coast based charity groups, Grammar students are extending a hand of support in times of need.
Students have the opportunity to be involved in many community based initiatives at Grammar, some of which include:
Grammar Helping Hands
This is an initiative of Sunshine Coast Grammar and was developed to allow students to provide a ‘hands on’ approach to giving. Through backyard makeovers, painting, cleaning and building projects, Grammar students support a large range of families and organisations across the coast who, through a variety of circumstances are most in need of a ‘helping hand’.

Charities of Choice
A key feature of each Year level across the Secondary school at Grammar is a chosen ‘charity of choice’. Each year level is responsible for running a campaign program which raises awareness of and funds for a nominated charity partner within Australia. Students undertake a range of activities and provide a number of opportunities for others across the school to be involved in assisting this large and diverse range of non-profit organisations.
In the Primary school a group of students are selected each year to coordinate Primary Projects. These Primary Projects are often reflective of whole school charity drives, such as the Cancer Council Shave for a Cure and World Vision’s Forty Hour Famine. At other times they are independent projects based on charity initiatives coming from the Primary School.
