Empowering and equipping children and young people to flourish in life, by welcoming them into our schools that are shaped by Christian faith and values, and creating an environment where all within the community can truly belong, learn and thrive.
To be a thriving network of interdependent Christian schools in Australia that are inspired by the mission initiated by Jesus Christ to equip and empower those we serve to experience life in all of its fullness.
Our Key Biblical Text
John 10:10b “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”
We are captivated by the love and compassion for all people that Jesus Christ modelled, which inspires us to serve students from all backgrounds, irrespective of their family’s religious or nonreligious beliefs, cultural heritage and financial means.
We believe that life is a gift from God to be celebrated and enjoyed in community. We desire nothing less than to see our students and staff joyfully and diligently engaging in learning, having fun and laughing easily.
We recognise that everything we have is a provision from God that is to be carefully stewarded. This motivates us to have a heart of gratitude for the finances, resources, talents and abilities we have and to manage them prudently and wisely.
We are committed to excellence, integrity and fairness in all that we do, but recognise that as part of humankind, we are all imperfect. For this reason, in humility, we embrace authenticity, transparency and accountability throughout our organisation.
Integral to the mandate for Christian people and organisations is the imperative to care for the vulnerable, protect the weak, challenge the oppressor and embrace fairness in all matters. These principles implore us to challenge any behaviours that undermine the physical, social or spiritual safety of our students or staff and foster a culture characterised by respect, fairness and care for all. We also strive to be above reproach in our business practices by engaging respectfully and fairly with all parties and welcoming accountability.
