In 1990, Arndell Anglican College opened its doors to just 47 students taught by a few pioneering staff. This year, over 1000 students and 100 staff are celebrating the school’s 25th anniversary.

The Arndell school community spans Kindergarten to Year 12, and all students came together for Foundation Day festivities on Friday 6 March. After a commencement service, students celebrated with sports, games, a dance competition, Arndell trivia, art and craft, cake decorating, and even liquid nitrogen gelato-making!

“It was an absolute pleasure to see our junior and senior students interact with one another on the day,” said the school’s principal, Gareth Leechman. “We really are a very caring community, and there was a real sense of belonging displayed.”

Arndell’s pastoral care program, educational excellence and robust program of co-curricular activities attract many local families from the Hawkesbury and Outer Hills areas.

Students have been on a science excursion to Uluru already this year, and a mission trip to Fiji is planned for September. The College offers sports including netball, rugby, cricket and equestrian, as well as debating, drama and music. This year, the performing arts department is putting on the musical Annie from 11-13 June – tickets are available to the public.
