We have a well-known saying at our school: “You never really leave a school like Lindisfarne, you just stop attending every day.”
Our P&F plays a crucial role in promoting and developing a spirit of cooperation and community support for parents, guardians, teachers and students.
Parents and Friends
The Lindisfarne Parents and Friends Association (P&F) actively supports the School and offers a wonderful opportunity to meet new parents and assist with what is happening at Lindisfarne.
The objectives of the P&F are consistent with the School’s vision and values. All parents and guardians of students enrolled at the School are members of the P&F. Anyone is welcome to attend general meetings which take place six times per year.
The P&F organises numerous social events, family days and fundraisers in support of the School. Any help is always greatly appreciated and you will be welcomed into a dynamic group of enthusiastic parents and friends.
Please come to our meetings if you are interested in contributing to making a difference for our students.

At the heart of education is education of the heart.
Our aim is for Lindisfarne graduates to be equipped, enabled and empowered academically and emotionally to assume responsibility for making a positive contribution to the world.
We help our students paint the picture of their future selves, one where their skills and dispositions are centred around being compassionate, ethical, globally responsible, engaged, inclusive, respectful and just — for “at the heart of education is education of the heart.”
While the role of traditional classroom learning in developing these attributes is not to be dismissed, experiential, other-person-centred learning experiences is key in shifting our students’ thinking from “what have I got to get?” to “what have I got to give?”
Altruism, in all forms, has the potential to reward those who give as much or more than the beneficiary. When our students are giving, their view of the world around them broadens, their capacity for social and emotional growth is stretched, and they become greater assets to our communities.
Outside of School Hours Care
At Lindisfarne Outside of School Hours Care (OOSHC), we provide a friendly, safe and fun environment where children are nurtured and supported by dedicated and qualified educators.
We deliver varied programs with age-appropriate, engaging activities which develop the children’s independence and provide opportunities to broaden their understanding of the world in which they live.
OOSHC hours (NSW local time)
Before School Care:
7.15am to 8.15am (Kindergarten to Year 4)
7.15am to 8.45am (Preschool)
After School Care:
3.00pm to 6.00pm
8.00am to 6.00pm — school holiday period.
The staff and students of Lindisfarne Anglican Grammar School acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land on which our school is situated. We acknowledge the Minjungbal people of the Bundjalung Nation and pay our respects to Elders past and present. We extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples who visit our school.
The School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the safety, welfare and wellbeing of children and young people and expects all staff, volunteers and visitors to share this commitment.
