Principal's welcome

Founded in 1993 and situated in the Carnarvon township. Carnarvon Christian School prides itself on the delivery of a quality education that caters for students from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 6. The development of strong, positive, Christian values and positive respectful relationships between members of our community and an excellent academic standard is at the forefront of our mission.

In our expansive and beautiful grounds, students experience a co-educational setting for years Pre-Kindergarten to Year 6 with a vision to expand to secondary if required by the Carnarvon Community.

We aim to prepare our students to reach their potential in all facets of their lives, be that academic, spiritual, sporting or cultural. Our values are based on our heritage and ethos, committing us to providing excellence in education within a Christ-centred environment. CCS supports students in their growth as contributing members of the community, whilst living the ethos of the Christian faith within the day to day life of CCS.

We are proud of our students, present and past, who are, or have enjoyed, an education at our School and we look forward to welcoming new generations, as we continue to improve in the vital work of preparing our young people to be caring, responsible and trustworthy citizens of the future.

Children at Carnarvon Christian School (CCS) are taught that we are all part of God’s grand narrative. Paraphrasing what one Christian writer stated, “God has given us a Story to live in, and we need to learn to apply ourselves to the Story rather than the other way around; applying the Bible to our worldview.”

Children are taught that the Scripture is not only a story of power but a story of love – genuine love, overflowing love for the world God has made. We prepare children not to live in a Christian bubble but to engage culture and have an impact on the world. Our response should be as it is written in Mark: 12:30 “…Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all you mind, and with all your strength. And then furthermore in Mark: 12:31, the Bible commands us to love others as ourselves.”

We all view the world through our own cultural lens, so it is important to teach children that we all have beliefs, biases and underlying assumptions which influence our actions. Other cultures are studied and children become aware of their prejudices as they compare and contrast their way of life to others. We at CCS take seriously the overarching vision of the National Safe Schools Framework “All Australian schools are safe, supportive and respectful teaching and learning communities that promote student wellbeing.” We take pride in the fact that 100% of the respondents to our school survey either agreed or strongly agreed that their child feels safe and really likes attending school every day.

I thank God for the great privilege it is to lead at Carnarvon Christian School.

May we continue to be blessed in 2024.
