CARE FOR THE INDIVIDUAL

The College staff are dedicated in their care for each child at the College. Structures and programs ensure the individual needs of each child are recognised but it is the heart that each staff member has for the students that impacts lives.

Recycled Paper

"We have had a confidence in the teaching staff, that they had genuine care for our child, they had a deep understanding of his abilities, strengths and weaknesses and were willing to put themselves out in time, energy and emotion to enable him to reach his goals."

College Parent, Year 11 Student

Recycled Paper

"I seek for each student to know how highly God values them, whilst also keeping them accountable to the goals they aspire to achieve. We all need someone to listen to us, and I am blessed to be able to share the wisdom of many years of teaching, and living, with our Senior students."

Mrs Belinda Everingham, Senior Teacher

COVID-19 Caring for Our Community

COVID-19 has presented our community with a series of challenges. The College knows that, in times of crisis, we need to walk together in partnership to not only meet the educational needs of our students but, also to provide a safe place that cares for our children providing them with a strong sense of normality, predictability and consistency. 

We trust that we can walk the road we are on together, encouraging and supporting one another. If you or someone you know needs support please do not hesitate to contact the College Counsellor through the College Office on 6923 8888.
