Our Strengths

Our Vision

‘Excellent Education in a Christ-centred environment’. 

Our vision is to see excellent education in a Christ-centred environment where the lives of our students are transformed. We aim to see every student thriving and doing their own personal best: intellectually (head), spiritually (heart), and morally (hands).

Our Mission

‘To encourage the development of Christian faith in students’. 

Our mission is to encourage the development of Christian faith in students where every student is given the opportunity to explore the Christian story, experience Christian community, and embody Christian character. We want students to discover their own unique calling and to learn the knowledge and skills they need to make their own contribution to our 21st Century world.

Our philosophy

"Act Justly, Love Mercy, Walk Humbly" - Micah 6:8.

Our ethos is built around acting justly, loving mercy, and walking humbly (Micah 6:8). These Christian virtues are best cultivated in partnership between the student, the family, and the school. We see our role in Christian education as working with families to provide the best possible environment for students to learn, grow, and develop.

Our Distinctives

Community

We create safe spaces of belonging and connection where every student and staff member can be authentic.

Engagement

We ensure that every student and staff member is engaged, motivated, and positioned to do their own personal best.

Sustainability

We seek to preserve, recycle and restore. Every moment, resource, and encounter is valuable and of worth.

Innovation

We embrace new ideas, take risks, and explore new possibilities in seeking to serve our students and their families.

Transformation

We want to see the transformation of every person, and all of God’s creation, one step at a time.

Our Values

Love and Compassion

We value love as the motivating force that seeks to do what is best for others and compassion as the ability to put yourself in someone else’s shoes and to feel what they experience.

Humility and Service

We value humility as a way of viewing oneself and believe that all human achievement should be measured by the way it serves others.

Generosity and Thankfulness

We value generosity as a way of reflecting God’s unconditional love towards us and seek to express thankfulness for all the good things that God continues to generously give.

Courage and Perseverance

We value courage as the strength to act in ways consistent with Christian values and we believe in perseverance, in seeing things through to completion especially when things are difficult.

Justice and Truth

We value justice as a way of ensuring that we treat others in a way that is right and fair, whilst simultaneously emphasising the importance of speaking the truth in love.

Community and Hospitality

We value community as the expression of connected relationships and a common mission, whilst hospitality serves as a means of ensuring that our lives are deeply shared and connected.

Peace and Stewardship

We value practices that strive for peace in all of our relationships and we seek to be good stewards of all the resources entrusted to us.

The Equality and Uniqueness of Every Person

We value the equality of all human beings and the unique image of God that is imprinted upon each human life.

Learning and Wellbeing

Stories and Strengths

Our vision is to see the life stories of our students transformed. We take a holistic approach to student development where learning and wellbeing are interconnected. As students learn and have positive experiences they foster the kinds of strengths that they need to flourish and as their sense of wellbeing increases their capacity to learn grows.

Our students are encouraged to develop their character strengths and to tell their own unique life-story. Students are immersed in a range of age-specific learning experiences that aim to develop the strengths of the head, heart and hands, so that students learn how to act justly, love mercy and walk humbly (Micah 6:8). These strengths then enable students to tackle the ups and downs of life and to shape their own life in such a way that enables them to serve others and the world in their own unique way.

Our teachers are passionate and love their students. They are learning designers, community facilitators, coaches and role-models who want the best for their learning communities. As a school, we aim to utilise the latest research to inform our teaching and learning strategies. We readily adopt innovative and exciting ways of teaching, embracing the effective use of technology and seeking to foster a love of learning right across the school.

Our Kindergarten

Our Early Learning Centre consists of Three and Four Year Old Kinder programs that position play-based learning at the heart.

Our passionate and caring teachers encourage the natural curiosity and creativity already present in each child, supporting them to develop their ideas and understanding about the world.

Using a nature based program and real life tasks - such as cooking, washing and gardening - empowers students to take ownership of their learning and the learning environment.

Bush Kinder is an integral part of the Kinder program and connects children to nature, fostering joy, open ended thinking and promoting love and wonder for our environment.

The Kinder students also participate in French, Music, Science (Four Year Old Kinder) and Library (Three Year Old Kinder). Our children learn in a safe and caring environment, providing the perfect bridge and relational connections to the Junior School right next door.
 

Our Junior School

Our Junior School consists of our Prep to Year 4 classes.

Our students are encouraged to actively explore and investigate throughout all of their learning experiences.

Our range of education initiatives provide a sound foundation across a range of academic subjects. We understand that young children learn best when they are highly engaged and remain motivated.

Teaching is approached using a variety of instructional practices geared to moving students progressively towards a stronger understanding of and, ultimately, a greater independence in, their learning process.

Our ‘special fit’ learning spaces facilitate hands-on learning and our friendly and safe learning environment helps to keep imaginations active and ensure that social skills are developed.

Outside areas provide students a range of opportunities for play, including an epic pirate playground, cubbies, a bountiful vegetable garden and ‘Cluckingham Palace’ (the royal residence of our beloved chickens).

Junior School seeks to nurture students in their learning experiences, while preparing them for the next step in their learning journey - Middle School.

Junior School

Our Middle School

Our Middle School consists of our Year 5 to Year 8 classes.

During this stage of development students experience a variety of changes and a sense of togetherness and belonging is so important. We work with parents to help our students navigate this phase of adolescence as well as ensuring that they are nurtured, challenged and inspired. 

Our students spend a majority of time with one teacher, allowing greater knowledge of the student and improved pastoral care. Alongside the core curriculum students participate in a unique variety of subjects such as Wood Tech, Art, Food Tech, Media, Environmental Studies as well as other passion-based projects.

Our Middle School learning spaces are designed to be innovative and flexible with creative and engaging outside areas including a giant chessboard, concrete table tennis table, a six metre high climbing web and a rock amphitheatre.

Various events run throughout the year to unite year levels including house competitions, activities, assemblies and exciting camps.

We run an Instrumental Program (Year 7) and the PUSH Program (Year 8) which focus on furthering academic engagement through musical and physical challenges.

Middle School is focused on building resilience in students as they progress through the years, while preparing them academically for Senior School.

Middle School

Our Senior School

Senior School consists of our Year 9 to Year 12 classes.

Our Year 9 Program combines fresh, vibrant experiences (such as community service and city and surf camps) with a rigorous academic program. 

In the earlier years of Senior School, students can select from a wide range of electives and Year 10 students can choose to accelerate into a VCE subject.

In Year 10, the focus is on pathways, with an emphasis on future careers and work experience, where students begin to explore and choose from a range of options available to them in their final years of school.

Years 11 and 12 see students provided with tailored pathways, with transition into VCE or VCAL. We offer a wide range of subjects that cater to the diverse needs of students and ensure that students are well positioned to pursue their desired career avenues.

The final years of Senior School provide students with further options to study various VCE VET subjects or commence a University subject through Higher Education Learning.

The purpose-built VCE/VCAL Centre is a hive of activity for senior students and each student’s learning journey culminates in a series of mountain top experiences - launching them out into the future.
