"Throughout history, many Christians have had significant roles in impacting society. Within Waverley Christian College, our four Houses reflect a few of these people - William Tyndale, Charles Spurgeon, Charles Finney and John Wycliffe. Their education of the Christian faith extended beyond the classroom into a practical application that changed the course of history.
In the present day, the College community remains one that encourages the development of enduring Christian faith. However, the opportunities and challenges present in this generation, like social media, can make it difficult to ground our opinions in the Word of God. As a result, it is more important than ever to have an active faith.
We believe it is essential, as leaders, that we provide a safe space for the next generation to ask questions that help their opinions to grow from a Christ-like outlook. By doing so, we are able to truly be the hands and feet of Jesus in our day-to-day lives. We want to develop a school culture which inspires students to grow in their faith and become kind and compassionate young people who can alter the path of history.”

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom - Proverbs 9:10
“Throughout the Bible, we are shown different values that Christians should uphold in order to help live as Christ-like as possible. As a College, our seven values are: Faith, Respect, Excellence, Love, Integrity, Community, Wisdom - these govern the way that we work and learn together. For the 2021 school year, wisdom has been chosen as the value that the College will focus on and strive to achieve in our day to day life.
Choices regarding our future become increasingly frequent and significant as we ascend through school. As Year 12 students, we are approaching a season of uncertainty, with decisions affecting our life after graduating having to be made in the next couple months. As leaders, we know that it will be vital to inquire of God in this time as he will help discern the path he has for each of us.
We want to create a culture where students have a heart that longs for God to give them wisdom in their daily life. Whenever they are faced with new decisions, both big and small, we pray that they would turn to God first to guide them and through this, they would grow in their trust and relationship with Him. We are looking forward to the journey ahead for 2021!”
