CARE Club provides students at St Andrew's with the opportunity to choose, support and have a voice on social issues that matter most to them.

The name itself, derived by the children, is an acronym for Community, Action, Reconciliation and Equity.

Amongst general support throughout the year to the School community, CARE Club is also responsible for tidying teacher spaces, art rooms, being ‘Rubbish Rangers’ (JP Care Club) and supporting key events and awareness days throughout the year.

Below are some of the initiatives driven and managed by CARE Club:

Soup Preparation

Studentsdonated and prepared ingredients for 20L of soup for the Mary Magdalene Centre to feed the vulnerable people in our community.

Can Drive for Refugee Week

In response to Refugee Week, cans were donated by students and delivered to the Anglicare Emergency Crisis Centre, which was then distributed to refugee organisations in the area.

Backpacks for the Homeless

Donations from the School community of essential items including personal hygiene items, hats, hairbrushes, waterproof ponchos were packed into backpacks that were delivered to the Anglicare Emergency Crisis Centre. These backpacks were made available to the vulnerable and homeless in our community and were very gratefully received.

Trees For Life

CARE Club members supported Walkerville Rotary Club in planting seedlings for Trees For Life.

Nude Food

The Junior Primary CARE Club initiated Nude Food weeks where children from around the school were encouraged to bring food for recess and lunch without plastic packaging.
