Andrew Jaensch retires

On the evening of Friday, 21 February ALC staff—both past and present—came together in North Adelaide to farewell their friend and colleague, Andrew Jaensch, and to reminisce about days gone by.

Andrew joined ALC in 2009 and for the duration of his employment served as ALC’s Lutheran Strand Coordinator in Queensland and Lecturer in Educational Theology, based at Australian Catholic University in Brisbane.

A passionate teacher, Andrew’s special interests throughout his career included:

·         School ministry

·         Worship in Christian education

·         Indigenous and cross-cultural education

·         Spiritual and vocational formation

·         Teaching English as a second language

·         Developing teaching techniques which maximise student engagement.

In recognition of his years of service to the College, the ALC Board has awarded Andrew the status of Lecturer Emeritus.

The ALC community wishes Andrew every blessing for his retirement as he looks forward to spending some quality time with his wife, Fiona, their beloved Labrador, Winton, and their children and grandchildren.
