Thank you for showing an interest in Shire Christian School. Our school started from humble beginnings in 1977 in a church hall with under 20 students with a vision to partner parents in their children's Christian education.
Since moving to our present site in Barden Ridge in 1981, our school has grown to over 800 students. We offer a preparatory program in the year before children start Kindergarten, known as Shire Prep. Shire Christian has a vibrant Junior School (Kindergarten to Year 6) and Secondary School (Year 7 to Year 12).
The school logo uses the words a firm foundation to indicate that, from the time the school first started, we educate children believing that the Bible thoroughly equips us for every good work. Our school provides a Christian education where students are a part of regular devotions, study the Bible in Christian Studies classes, and have an opportunity to understand a Christian perspective on a range of topics they study.
Our school's firm foundation is seeking to establish for each child also involves helping them develop core knowledge and skills that will be a foundation for future learning. For example, our Junior School emphasizes phonics to help ensure younger students develop strong literacy skills. We attribute our school's strong NAPLAN results to this approach. An excellent education seeks to equip students with a range of skills and attributes that will equip them for life's opportunities and challenges when they finish school. This is why the school has developed the 7Cs of a Shire Christian School education.
Our Vision is to be Students equipped, in all their endeavors, to the Glory of God. Our Mission
To provide a quality, affordable Christian education.
To partner with like-minded Christian parents in their God-given duty and right to educate and train their children.
To honor God through Christ-centred education founded on the Bible.
We hold the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are the infallible Word of God, consistent with the Reformed understanding of Biblical truth.
We hold to Scripture alone, Christ alone, Grace alone, Faith alone, for the Glory of God alone.
