Primary School

Building strong foundations of faith and knowledge for lifelong success in a Christ-centered primary education.

Christian Education

Providence Christian College offers a comprehensive Primary School education programme for children in Pre-Primary to Year Six.

The Primary School Staff are dedicated Christian teachers who work to build a solid academic basis for their students while recognising and encouraging the development of spiritual foundations in their lives. Daily devotions encourage students to develop concern for one another and emphasise the importance of acknowledging and making time for God in their lives.

Opportunities also exist for younger students to interact positively through mentoring and Buddy Programmes with more senior students. This interaction aims to encourage a College-wide sense of community and cooperation.

Student Development Programme

At Providence Christian College, our CARE, ESTEEM and EPIC Student Development Programmes address the following goals in a number of different ways:

  • Personal and social capability assists students to become successful learners, helping to improve their academic learning and enhancing their motivation to reach their full potential.
  • Ethical understanding assists students to become confident and creative individuals and active and informed citizens.
  • Critical and creative thinking are fundamental to students becoming successful learners. Thinking that is productive, purposeful and intentional is at the centre of effective learning.
