Flourishing community organisations in rural and regional areas, where Senex people live and work, benefit us all. We are proud to help enhance local communities by supporting
education, health, the performing arts, sporting and other community initiatives.
Senex supports more than 30 local organisations across the Surat and Cooper basins.
Supporting big things to grow
Senex has partnered with Maranoa Regional Council to sponsor the small grants category of the area’s community grants program. The innovative partnership doubled the grants pool to $30,000, provided equally by the council and Senex. Funds are distributed to successful local applicants to undertake valuable community projects, local events and education activities
across the region.
Greening ovals in Wandoan
Senex has helped to drought‐proof Wandoan State School’s playing fields by contributing half the cost of fresh turf and an irrigation system to keep the grass green. Students have a better opportunity to enjoy physical activity, and the wider community has access to green fields for
sports and fundraising events.
Roma Performing Arts take centre stage
Senex and Roma Performing Arts made their stage debut in 2019 with a sponsored production of Legally Blonde – The Musical. The partnership with Senex marked an exciting new chapter for Roma Performing Arts as it celebrated its fiftieth year showcasing local talent in south-west Queensland.
ColourXplosion of support
Rainbows explode across Roma every year as part of the annual Senex ColourXplosion, a partnership with PCYC Maranoa. The event is held every year on Easter Sunday to raise funds for youth development and crime prevention programs. The 5km fun run and walk is a popular family event in the region.
Senex rocks STEM education
A three-year partnership with Queensland Minerals and Energy Academy (QMEA) is providing hands‑on learning experiences for students at Roma Secondary College and St John’s Catholic School. QMEA’s STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) program is Australia’s largest and most successful industry-led, schools and industry initiative. Senex engineers and hydrogeologists get involved to bring STEM experiences to Roma’s secondary schools and
showcase careers in the natural gas industry.
