School History

The Vision of a Christian school in Carnarvon (CCS) led to a public meeting in July 1992 and the wheels were put into motion.

On 31 January 1995 Carnarvon Christian School embarked on its Christ-centred educational journey; commencing with one teacher and seventeen pupils which met together in a church hall.

There were initial setbacks and CCS nearly closed due to teething difficulties but the unseen hand of our wonderful Lord was at work during this sifting and shaking up process. Through the wisdom of a dedicated School Board and the sacrifices made by many people, including a volunteer teacher, the school not only survived but grew in number.

In 2003 we were blessed to be able purchase our current block of land which is found less than l kilometre from the town centre of Carnarvon. Then in 2004 we shifted to our new purpose built school on this property with 3 teachers and 40 children.

The world financial crisis and the Australian Government’s response in 2010 with “the Building Education Revolution” led to the building of a large school hall, complete with a canteen and library. This landmark building put CCS on the map and signified to the community we were here to stay.

Since that time our school population has steadily grown to its current population of 150 students with 6 full-time teachers, as well as education assistants and ancillary staff.
