The OFGS Foundation Mission
The core vision of our School is to equip our young people for a successful life.
The Oxford Falls Grammar School Foundation exists to support this vision which is evident in our mission statement – ‘Equipping our community to participate in and enjoy a culture of Generosity.’
To become a whole person of good character we recognise that one needs to develop a spirit of generosity – to find and give generously to something bigger than ourselves. We purpose to join with the School and equip each student to leave our care with a spirit of generosity as part of their character so that they will be contributors to society not just consumers. We believe that this can only be taught by example.
In 2011 the OFGS Foundation hosted its inaugural fundraising dinner. The School community generously donated funds for upgrades around the School. At the beginning of 2012, the OFGS Foundation used these funds to complete air conditioning the entire Junior School (K–6). This video shows the appreciation from our Junior School students to the OFGS community for ‘making their classrooms cool in summer’ and ‘warm in winter!’
Families at Oxford Falls Grammar School are encouraged to continue making tax-deductible donations to the Foundation via voluntary donations attached to tuition fee invoices. Every dollar goes to helping our School provide the facilities that our students enjoy, while ensuring our fees remain as inclusive as possible.
In addition to this, families in our School community give finances, time and/or other assistance as able and, in this way, contribute to the future as well as demonstrating generosity to our student body. This follows in the example set by past families that have sown into our present campus.
OFGS and C3 Church
Over the years, the School has enjoyed a close relationship with the founding members of the School. Dr Phil Pringle and his wife, Ps Christine Pringle (Senior Ministers of C3 Church), together with the C3 Church community have supported the School through continuous prayer, vision and funding. It is through C3’s generosity and diligence that the School was first established as a ministry to the broader community, as a School, we are thankful for their ongoing support.
