“It has been a challenge for me to adapt. However, the fact I’m living in Dunmore has made this much easier. Dunmore is not only a block of units. It’s a strong community. Residents are always keen to look after each other. I have met wonderful people and made really good friends.” – an international student now at Dunmore.

Reflections from Dunmore residents:

“Living at Dunmore has been a very enriching experience for me. Since I am an international student my background and culture are very different to Australian culture and it has been a challenge for me to adapt. However, the fact I’m living in Dunmore has made this adaptation process much easier and bearable because this community has helped me to understand and be familiar with my new environment. I believe that Dunmore is not only a block of units, but also a friendly and strong community where residents are always keen to look after each other, to organise community activities and to give their best to make life better. After a year living at Dunmore I can say I have met wonderful people and made really good friends.”

“Dunmore has provided a great opportunity promoting development of independence alongside a sense of community and family away from home.”

Clarence House

The Clarence House property is still in its early stages of development. It is a combined ministry with the Presbyterian Theological College and is a block of 9 units located in Burwood, on property that adjoins the PTC site. This is a marvellous answer to prayer as it will enable whole families to be part of the PTC community and make the move to Sydney so much easier for those who come from rural areas. The units are gradually being updated as the existing leases expire and already two PTC students and their families have been able to move in.
