Northsider Bruce Garbutt sadly passed away on Monday, 18 January. 

Bruce was a long serving and dedicated College Director, Nexus Church board member and treasurer, as well as being an Australian leader of International Christian Embassy in Jerusalem, and establishing Neighbours Aid Charity Shops.

Bruce is survived by his wife, Merrilyn, and his three children; Trish Bernhofen (Junior School teacher at Northside), Randall and Deanna (Alumnus ‘03), and was also a much loved and devoted Northside grandparent. 

We are sincerely thankful for the impact his life, faith and character had on Northside Christian College, and are praying for his family in this time.
