Christian Schools Are Different

Christian schools are different. It’s this difference that is the reason why you choose to send your children to St Andrews Christian College.


Christian schools also make a difference. According to the Cardus Education Survey, graduates of Christian schools:


  • Feel better prepared to find meaning, purpose and direction in life
  • Are more likely to volunteer with organisations that help the elderly and care for the environment
  • Are more likely to belong to a trade union or political party


This difference isn’t an accident. The gospel shapes our lives with an eternal purpose, transforms our relationships and compels us to love our neighbours (and even our enemies).


At the heart of this difference is the authentic faith of our teachers and staff. But some don’t value this difference. They want to take away the ability of schools like ours to be able to hire teachers and staff who not only believe but also live these life-changing values.


In December, the Australian Law Reform Commission will be making some recommendations to the Australian Government that could have big changes to the future of our school.


My Christian School is a new grassroots movement of Australians who believe in the difference Christian schools make. St Andrews Christian College is a part of this movement and your help is needed to pass on this difference for future generations.


Please visit the My Christian School website and sign-up to show your support. Together, we can preserve the precious difference of Christian schools.

An Update From Mrs Wansbrough

There was much disbelief from the local community that NEPAL PROMISE BILINGUAL SCHOOL would be ready to commence on April 23rd, but to their amazement, the school began operating on time, as scheduled, with 40 students. 


It was a grand team effort from everyone, with the lower level of the school building ready for students and staff. Despite no windows or electricity, 4 classrooms, a meeting room, 2 offices and separate toilet blocks for girls and boys were functional for the big day. 


The presence of joy filled the air as we all rejoiced and thanked God. We thanked Him for His provision through so many people in Nepal and from Australia.

Transform the Nations has been able to build PROMISE BILINGUAL SCHOOL because of the generous financial and practical support from various schools and faithful supporters. Thank you everyone!
