Why We are Here?

God, the Holy Spirit, called for a Christian School in Mosgiel. The aim of the staff is to fully develop the God given abilities for each child individually within the context of a Christian family environment.

To develop pathways to mature development - extending the child's achievements in skills and knowledge so that they leave us as men and women sure of their faith, strong in their churches and capable of meeting the challenges of life in the world.

What ERO Said.

ERO Report:

Included in the ERO Report for December 2012 were these comments:

"Students' learning benefits from well-organised and attractive classrooms. The school operates senior and junior classrooms. At times students move between these classrooms to receive targeted learning. Teachers know their children well.

The small numbers in each class allow teachers to maximise learning opportunities.

Students can advance rapidly and are able to identify how well they are learning and where they need to improve.

Parents are regularly informed about the progress and achievement of their children.

Students receive very good quality te reo and tikanga Maori learning experiences on a regular basis as well as being introduced to wide multi-cultural experiences."
