At Northside Christian College we encourage our families to support a number of charities throughout the year. Our students across the entire school community actively participate in a range of fund raising activities for specific charity events.
VIETNAM VENTURES – Mission Team 2015
In November-December 2015 we have a group of senior secondary students travelling to Vietnam to work in partnership with Samaritan’s Purse on what will be a life transforming Mission Trip.

FINAL UPDATE 4-8/12
The final days in Vietnam were in many ways the highlight of the trip for our team. On Friday they had the opportunity, along with staff from Samaritan’s Purse, to distribute shoe boxes as part of the Operation Christmas Child. This was an amazing experiencing for all involved. The Northside Christian College community had been involved in supplying goods for many of these gifts earlier this year and fundraising for their freight to Vietnam.
The Team also had the chance for some final sight seeing and attended Church (in the middle of a torrential downpour) on their final Sunday before preparing for the journey home to Melbourne.
