Focusing on the whole person
Grounded in the principles of our Christian ethos, our wellbeing program focuses on building emotional resilience, sustaining relationships and developing the confidence to articulate and critically reflect on the students’ own personal development.
At Christian College we are focused on developing…
…an atmosphere of care and concern for each student’s character, growth and wellbeing, within a value system and set of priorities derived from the Christian faith.
Wellbeing is vital, crucial, and fundamental to our very purpose and stated reason for existence.
We are committed to nurturing all members of the College community, as we discover and confirm wholistic health, both individually and collectively.
