“Our College Core Values are modelled on Luke 10:27: ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and love others as much as you love yourself.’”
These values are explicitly taught and form part of the weekly teaching program.
As well as our College Core Values, the Australian designed ‘You Can Do It!’ Program has been embedded through our culture. The 'You Can Do It!' education’s core purpose is the development of young people’s social and emotional capabilities, including the five foundations:
While academic growth and achievement is important to us,
we also value the development of students socially, emotionally and spiritually.
These offer students a calm structured environment for explicit quality teaching while also providing flexibility for rich engagement, deep enquiry and collaborative learning.
We teach students about Character, Care and Courage (the younger years' love interaction with our puppets) and look for opportunities to recognise and reward students who are exhibiting these values.
Students enjoy access to a range of technology to enhance their educational experience and also benefit from specialised lessons in music, drama, PE and the library.
Each week they gather in the Chapel where they learn from the Bible, pray and sing songs together.
As students progress, it is important that we nurture a wide range of individual skills and interests, that’s why we offer a broad range of extra curricular, sporting, music and leadership opportunities.
We have designated play spaces for children to imagine, explore and interact with others. Large rock climbing walls, amazing slides and open green spaces for them to run and play.
Our Pre-K students develop a lifelong love of learning, quality relationships with peers and staff and, most importantly, a love of God.
