    At Araluen Christian College, we believe that one of the most critical choices parents face today is educating their children. As parents, you look for quality education with high academic standards and instill the values you believe are essential for your children.

    We believe that it is possible to combine a quality academic education and a commitment to Christian values. At Araluen Christian College, we integrate both these perspectives: in an affordable education equipping your children for life. While strongly advocating a Christian worldview, we cover all aspects of the national Australian Curriculum. At the same time, we continue to integrate the parts of the Northern Territory Curriculum Framework, which are still in use.

    Transition gives children a first impression of the educational pathway they are embarking on as the door is opened. At Araluen, it is important to us that children have a happy and successful start to school. Children are individuals who mature at differing rates, and as such, they will progress differently from each other. Some are ready and eager; some are a little reluctant; some need gentle encouragement; some need a firmer approach. All need constant care as they become familiar with a new environment.

    A typical day in Transition may look like this:

    • The day begins with Brain Gym, a series of exercises that calm and prepares the brain for learning.
    • Class devotions and fruit break.
    • Several days per week, the students participate in a Perceptual Motor program. This involves fun physical activities that enable children to use their bodies to develop their fine and gross motor skills. It also allows them a time to relate more informally in a group setting with their peers.
    • After Recess, developmental concepts in literacy and numeracy are the focal points up until lunchtime.
    • The afternoon is spent focusing on the following areas Science, History, Geography, Technology and Design, Learning Technology, Health, Biblical Studies, Art, Music, Library, and Physical Education.

    There is plenty of time to learn through play, build and create, develop social skills, solve problems, and resolve the occasional conflict. Your child is unique to us, and we delight to see him or her progressing along this great pathway.

    Address: Araluen Christian College, 10 Blain St Alice Springs, Northern Territory, NT 0870, Australia
