Cricks makes an awesome donation!

“Thank you” can become a bit worn when you’re the recipient of a constant stream of heartfelt generosity… but in the end it’s all we can say… so once again thank you on behalf of all the young people and the whole team at Compass Institute.  We are very grateful for the support from Matt, Dan and all the wonderful people at Cricks Noosa and Nambour

Compass Farm Open Day

The Farm Open Day

Yesterday, June 15th, Compass Farm held its annual Open Day, and boy what an open day it was.  With 200 plus attendees, the open day saw parents, families and schools come to visit the farm to see what Compass has to offer.

The most exciting part of the day was announcing the birth of twin baby lambs to mom Celine.

Sunshine Coast Marathon

THANK YOU TO ALL THE 2015 VOLUNTEERS
This event would not be possible without the support, dedication and sheer energy of our volunteers. More than 500 people offered their help at the 2015 event and we are proud to be able to give a donation back to each volunteer group.

From looking after bag drop to giving out medals, from cheerleaders to manning water stations, we appreciate every single contribution. We would also like to give a special thanks to one particularly important group – the students from The Compass Institute who came and helped set up the event precinct and also ran the 2km event. Thank you

Palmwoods Education Unit took a road trip to visit Gympie Compass on Wednesday.

A fantastic day enjoyed by all. We walked over to the Valley Rattler train station, enjoyed ‘gluten free’ banana pancakes and made some great new friends.
