He has previously served on the Board of Dubbo Christian School before the two schools became linked.
The school is a beacon for what Christian living can and should look like. We need to do all we can to make that beacon as shine as brightly as possible, not to bring credit to us, but in thanks to our God for the good things He has done for us. Andrew welcomes the opportunity to help that beacon shine.
