We are a registered school teaching the Australian Curriculum and its eight key learning areas: English, Mathematics, Science, Health and Physical Education, Humanities and Social Sciences, The Arts, Technologies and Languages.
At North West Christian School, we appreciate the role of education in building and equipping our students to be successful contributors in their communities, and to develop a richer understanding of our world. This is achieved through supporting the key eight learning areas, and allowing students to engage, discover, explain and extend their learning.
Sport is an important part of our curriculum to developing a variety of skills and personal resilience. Athletics and swimming lessons are run every year, while the senior students are involved in hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, camping and learning ropes (see outdoor education).
We have a zero-tolerance policy towards any form of bullying. Students are taught Christian principles of self-worth and respect for others.
Duke of Edinburgh Program
The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award is an internationally recognised program for young people, building their skills to equip them for life and work.
By creating opportunities for young people to develop skills, get physically active, give service and experience adventures, the Award can play a critical role in their development. Through a strong yet flexible framework, your daughter or son can uniquely design their Award, choosing activities that spark their interest and challenge them to achieve great heights. The Duke of Edinburgh awards are available to all students aged 14 and over and range from Bronze, Silver and Gold.
North West Christian School has been involved in the Duke of Edinburgh since 2000. The program works excellently wth our thriving outdoor education program and also contributes a percentage toward TCE points for year 11 and 12 students. A Gold awardee will receive 38 points toward their TCE. It also fits in perfectly with our new mentoring program in the middle school and will be a continuation of this work with the students' focus to be outward, looking at what they can give back to the community.
