On November 24th, Compass held it’s annual Awards Night. The night focuses on celebrating the achievements of the Staff and Trainees throughout the year. Here are some photos from the night.
Recently a group of Compass trainees spent the day at Mooloolaba beach learning about beach safety. The trainees enjoyed the experience and definitely learned a lot that will help them be safe over the summer months in particular. A huge thank you to the Surf Lifesaving team of volunteers who guided them through the activities!!! Other teams from all the Compass centres will have the same opportunity in coming weeks…
Compass was proud to play a small role in the opening of the new Palmwoods Piccabeen Green. A great example of collaboration between local Government and Community. Congratulations to Cr Jenny McKay as the key advocate of this place making project.
Congratulations also to Michelle & the Compass Farm Art trainees for the amazing hand made picnic blanket used in the ceremony.

Compass was proud to be a sponsor on Friday the 23 March at the Sunny Coast Club Dinner at the Maroochy RSL. The large crowd were entertained by Matt Wright – The Outback Wrangler – with tales from his adventures in the Australian bush as well as overseas.
We we’re also grateful to receive a cheque on the night for $1,800 as a beneficiary of the event. Thank you to the Sunshine Coast Daily for the opportunity. The next event will feature the amazing Cosentino so stay tuned for dates and make sure you get a table.
This morning I had breakfast with one of the most charitable and generous people on the Sunshine Coast – Matthew Murray. As so often happens, Matt kicked off by pushing a cheque across to me… on this occasion it was for $20,000.
By my estimate this takes the total he has donated to Compass over the past three years to $138,000… but that’s not all.
Every month Matt’s business – Cricks Sunshine Coast – buys specially prepared boxes of jams & chutneys made out on Compass Farm and puts a box in every new car they sell. The total of this support now exceeds $116,000!
And this doesn’t take into account the numerous Compass fundraising events he has sponsored…
I want to ask your help in applauding Matthew’s generosity… as a personal favour to me please like and share this post as widely as possible. Good news needs to be spread 😊. Thank you!
