PhilosophyFirst and foremost, St Andrew's is a Christian college and students are given every encouragement to grow spiritually while they are members of the College community. The awareness of the importance of a spiritual journey will hopefully remain with students long after they graduate from St Andrew's and throughout their lives. Christ's example and teachings underpin the ethos of the College, and the mutual respect, on which the College is built, is reflective of Christian values.
St Andrew's is specifically an Anglican College and a member of the Queensland Anglican Schools' Commission. It proudly reflects the traditions of care, academic rigour and commitment to the holistic education of the individual for which leading Anglican Schools are well known. The College will develop strong ties with the local Anglican parishes of Coolum and Noosa.
St Andrew's has its eyes firmly on both the present and the future. The students of today will face ever-increasing changes in the amount of and the accessibility of knowledge as they grow up. The role of a 'school of the future' is to plan to serve the needs of its students for the future, and to retain what is good from past practice. Special emphasis will be given to the role of technology and how it can serve students' educational needs in the best possible way.
St Andrew's is a College for the community, and in particular serving the needs of families in the northern end of the Sunshine Coast of Queensland. Strong ties will grow between the College and community groups, local businesses, other schools and universities.
In addition to these aspects, St Andrew's is also an environmentally aware College, being situated on a stunning campus, rich with flora and fauna of great beauty. The Litoria Olongburensis (Wallum Tree Frog) is a protected specimen and inhabits specific areas of our College site. This in addition to other rare or threatened species of fauna and flora will be fully considered as development of the College Site occurs. They will certainly add a richness to our College environment and we are privileged to be able to learn in such a naturally rich environment.
As demonstrated by the College motto - Vision and Spirit - St Andrew's is a place where emphasis is placed firmly on the ability to imagine a good learning journey ahead, and to ensure an excellent level of enthusiasm and energy among staff and students.
Expectations of all members of the College community, in terms of behaviour and respect for others, are high, as are the standards of personal presentation and wearing of the College uniform.
