Girton unites in spirit of giving at Service of Carols

1 December 2023

Thousands of members of the Girton Grammar School community united in the spirit of giving on Thursday 30 November at the School’s Service of Carols.

The service saw students from Prep to Year 11, accompanied by their families and staff members, fill six of Bendigo’s churches with generosity and song.

The cherished annual tradition provides an opportunity for the School community to come together and reflect on the true meaning of Christmas, with students participating in the service by singing carols and having the opportunity to place a gift at the alter or under the Christmas tree.

This event is a significant part of Bendigo’s Christmas giving initiative, seeing thousands of toys and gifts donated to local charities to support those in need, including the Kangaroo Flat Uniting Church Food Pantry, Bendigo Central and Axedale Christmas Appeal, Bendigo Baptist Community Care, St Luke’s Anglicare and St Vincent de Paul.

Thank you to staff, students and parents for their valuable contributions towards these special events.
