About Adventist Schools

 

Education based on faith

The Seventh-day Adventist school system is owned and operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

Seventh-day Adventists are a Christian denomination with a desire to know God better and experience him more in their lives each day. Central to our daily practice as Seventh-day Adventists is the Bible, which we believe is God’s message to mankind. Through the Bible people can learn all they need to know about God and salvation, about the basic principles for human relationships and practical Godliness. 

 

Education based on healthy lifestyle

In addition to strong Christian beliefs and principles, Seventh-day Adventists believe in health of mind, spirit and body. A 'healthy lifestyle' approach is promoted within the Seventh-day Adventist school system and is one of the most valued aspects of our approach to teaching. You can feel safe in the knowledge that your children are learning in an environment where a healthy approach to life is the norm.

An extension of the Seventh-day Adventist healthy lifestyle is our all-healthy tuckshop that operates in our college, proudly providing children with healthy lunches.

 

A values-based Christian education

Although Seventh-day Adventist schools are operated by a Christian organisation, we welcome students from all faiths and cultural backgrounds. We do not impose mandatory church attendance on families who attend our schools. However, you are all most welcome to join us at any time. Our Christian teaching and faith values the family, as well as strong Christian beliefs and a respect for others and ourselves. Whether your child is a Seventh-day Adventist, or follows another faith, we expect these values and principles to be upheld within our schools, and request a high standard of conduct both within and outside the school.

As a Christian organisation we devote time to worship and learning about God and the Bible. Your child will be involved in Bible classes and songs, hear regular biblical stories and will be involved in a weekly chapel service. All students are encouraged to have a relationship with Jesus, and worship lies at the heart of our school community. Through our devotion we aim to help the families at our schools raise responsible, mature and well-rounded children with a balance to their lives.
