Vision and Mission

Our Vision

We believe that the Word of God is the foundation of true education. The Lordship of Christ is paramount, and His presence will be recognised in all College activities and evidenced in the atmosphere of the College.

Our objective is to provide an education of high academic standards that are based on:

  1. an acceptance of the Lordship of Christ and
  2. an acceptance of the Bible as the revealed word of God
    as these are defined in the Confession of Faith of the School;

Also to provide an education that also:

  1. fosters self-discipline in the learner while teaching them to accept the discipline of the Church which is the Body of Christ, to be obedient to their parents and to obey the laws of the Government;
  2. caters for the individuality of the learner and stresses the function of the learner as a member of the Body of Christ and of the community;
  3. trains the learner in the moral and ethical standards of the Bible as interpreted in the teaching of the New Testament and assists them in acquiring a biblical world and life view and to appreciate the rights of others to hold different views;
  4. develops the learner’s creative and critical abilities;
  5. stresses co-operation rather than competition and fosters the development of the gifts, skills and abilities of the learner for the service of Jesus Christ in the Body of Christ and the community.

Our Philosophy

The College will promote the pursuit of excellence in all academic endeavours within a Christian context where learning proceeds according to the ability of each individual child. We believe that the responsibility for the education of children lies primarily with their parents. The Bible gives the instruction:

“Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6)

In seeking a school to assist with this training, Christian parents should select an academic institution which will reinforce Biblical values.

A Christian School should support and assist parents in their God-given task of bringing up children in the “discipline and instruction of the Lord”. The role of parents is recognised as integral to the education of their children. The authority of parents is respected and their involvement highly valued. The College recognises that its authority, though derived ultimately from God, is delegated to it from the parents and the Church. Areas that are primarily the responsibility of the family or the Church are not usurped, but will be supported by the College. Teachers, parents and students come together as a community of learners where they are mutually supportive of each other.

The College Aims

The Philosophy of the College finds expression through the following specific aims:

• To develop the spiritual, social, academic and physical potential of each student in a caring and disciplined environment.

• To assist each student towards a mastery of the basic academic and cognitive skills while also encouraging creativity in all areas of the curriculum.

• To provide a balanced school program in which the Christian faith forms an essential part of the life of the College.

• To foster in each student a desire to serve God and others in the community.

• To develop a love for Christ and truth, to adopt a set of Godly values and to accept responsibility for one’s actions.

• To train students in the highest principles of Christian leadership, self-discipline, individual responsibility, personal integrity, and good citizenship.
