Avon Valley Gazette - - EDUCATION MATTERS -

AT Swan Chris­tian Col­lege, chil­dren are val­ued in all they do and in ev­ery as­pect of their in­tel­lec­tual, cul­tural, sport­ing and spir­i­tual lives, says as­sis­tant prin­ci­pal Terry Ea­son.

“Great em­pha­sis is placed on teach­ing and learn­ing to help stu­dents ex­plore their in­tel­lec­tual hori­zons and achieve their aca­demic po­ten­tial,” he said.

“To as­sist our stu­dents achieve their po­ten­tial, the col­lege aims to pro­vide a sup­port­ive en­vi­ron­ment that is free from in­tim­i­da­tion, and recog­nises and nur­tures dif­fer­ences.”

Swan Chris­tian Col­lege has a strong pas­toral care pro­gram that pro­vides a frame­work of en­cour­age­ment, en­abling stu­dents to recog­nise and use their abil­i­ties with com­pas­sion, char­ac­ter and con­fi­dence in their com­mu­nity.

It is an ed­u­ca­tional com­mu­nity, con­sist­ing of col­lege staff, par­ents and chil­dren work­ing to­gether with the com­mon as­pi­ra­tion of iden­ti­fy­ing and de­vel­op­ing each child’s God-given gifts and abil­i­ties.

“We be­lieve that a broad based ed­u­ca­tion is built upon seven foun­da­tional pil­lars,” Mr Ea­son said.

“Th­ese de­scribe the at­tributes that our stu­dents will have the op­por­tu­nity to de­velop dur­ing their time at the col­lege and are knowl­edge, courage, ser­vice, wis­dom, en­gage­ment, lead­er­ship and spir­i­tu­al­ity.”

Schol­ar­ships are now open for 2016.
