Values

Waverley Christian College seeks to help children feel welcome from the very start of their school life. Your child is unique and we provide each student with a caring and dynamic learning environment.


Values

The most important things in life, according to Jesus Christ, are loving God and loving others. These are the foundational values of Waverley Christian College and govern all that we seek to be and do as we work and learn together. In dependence on the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, we will endeavour to be a school community that reflects His life and values.

Faith

Our belief in God as Creator, Saviour, and Sustainer of all. Our affirmation that Jesus Christ in the Son of God, Saviour and Lord. Our acceptance of God's Word, the Bible, as our rule for faith and practice. Our reliance on God in prayer. Our dependence on God and His grace.

“But because of His great love for us, God who is rich in mercy made us alive with Christ...it is by grace you have been saved”.
Ephesians 2:4-5

Respect

Valuing ourselves and others because all people matter to God and have been created in the image of God.
 
“You shall love your neighbour as yourself”
Mark 12:31

Excellence

Doing everything to the best of our ability for the glory of God.

“Whatever you do, work at it with your whole heart, as working for the Lord…”
Colossians 3:23

Love

Seeking others' highest good.

“Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends.”
John 15:13

Integrity

Being true to what we believe; acting with courage in accordance with Christian principles of moral and ethical behaviour. 

“Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity, and sound speech that cannot be condemned...”
Titus 2:7-8

Community

Functioning together in a healthy and constructive way. Being good stewards of our God given resources. Serving each other with joy and encouraging each other by using our gifts and abilities for each others' good, and for the wider community, both locally and overseas.

“If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose.”
Philipians 2:1-2

Wisdom

Wise application of learning and knowledge, understanding, good judgement, discernment; insight into the true nature of things.

“A wise person will hear, will increase in learning.”
Proverbs 1:5
