We aim to provide children with quality education in their years of school

The Christian Environment
The College is staffed by committed Christians and is founded on Christian principles. Children participate in Christian Education lessons during the week.
These emphasise basic Christian truths and their application to daily life.
Each morning, class devotions begin the day, possibly including a Bible reading and a simple prayer or song. Primary Worship Assemblies are held regularly during the term.
The Secondary School has a strong youth ministry dedicated to serving the students.
Students entering the College (at the Primary or Secondary level) are not required to have a commitment to the Christian Faith.
However, all students must participate fully in the Christian Education program of the College.
A strong Pastoral Care program operates throughout the College to enable the care and nurturing of students to be enhanced.
