Principal's Welcome

Principal's Welcome

Hello, thank you for visiting our website!

Welcome to Wellington Christian School! It is my great pleasure to show you just a snap shot of who we are and to explain some of the reasons we believe Christian education is a wonderful option for families of the Wellington District.

Choosing a school for your family is a very important decision. Not only are you selecting the kind of education you want for your children, you are becoming part of a community. At Wellington Christian School we believe in partnering with parents in raising their children. We do that best when we work to support each other as a team. You will find that at Wellington Christian School that team also includes the other families who are such an integral part of who we are.

We have a warm and inclusive community and culture that operates in an atmosphere of honesty and trust. Our people are certainly our greatest asset and blessing. We really are a family.

We are a K-6 school, with a very exciting story of re-establishment and growth. Under the guidance of a deeply committed, gifted and skilled teaching team, our students are nurtured and also encouraged to dig deep in their thinking and learning.

At Wellington Christian School we believe in providing a quality academic education that prepares our students for the 21st Century world they are growing up into. Future learning skills go way beyond the basics of reading, writing and numeracy. Whilst they are key, and highly important, we want to provide a learning environment that helps students to develop the higher order skills of critical thinking, problem-solving, working collaboratively, expressing creatively, making connections communicating effectively.

The students at Wellington Christian School are valued as individuals. The staff are committed to deeply knowing the needs of the children in their care so that they can structure learning to allow everyone to grow. But more than that, you can be assured that your child will be deeply known and valued for who they are. They will be seen and loved and supported, not only by their own teacher but by our whole community.

Authentic. Responsive. Transformational. These three words underpin who we are and why we exist as a school. It is our deep belief that education, and in fact our every action in life, should be authentic and true; should be targeted and responsive and should be ever encouraging and believing that transformation is possible.

I look forward to meeting you and discussing your child’s education.

Blessings,
