WS College Leaders

College Principal 

"The most important things in this life, according to Jesus Christ, are loving God and loving others. These are the foundational values of WCC and govern all that we seek to be and do.

WCC endeavours to provide an inspiring learning environment that will encourage each student to achieve their best. We recognise that this means different things for different children.

Students need to be provided with diverse, challenging, and rich educational experiences within a supportive framework. The academic, spiritual, emotional, social and physical well-being of our students is of primary importance to us.

The College greatly values the support of the parent community and seeks to work with families to reinforce Biblical values and standards of conduct.

It is my hope and prayer that WCC will be a community of faith, hope and love, and a place of blessing to its students and their families."

PETER SHEAHAN

College Deputy Principal

"I am passionate about quality Christian education and love seeing our College fulfill its vision as a Faith-based Learning Community, living and learning together.

With God’s guidance and wisdom and through the inspiration of His Spirit, we are learning to understand God’s world and His story, encouraging each other, and especially our children and young people, to grow in their faith and respond to Him in awe and worship and to His world in service."


ROD RAMSAY

 

Head of Campus

"At our Wantirna South Campus students are encouraged to not simply see their education as an academic pursuit or a means to an end. Rather we instil within each student that excellence in education is an act of worship and success is making the inner Jesus Christ, visible to all those around us. 

As a school we are committed to develop this type of learning across all subjects. We do not want our students to simply learn content or memorise aspects of curriculum but rather delve into the world of faith and thinking, as it informs their life and is expressed through positive actions.

It’s a privilege to be involved in Christian Education and I am excited to be a part of Waverley as we partner with families to prepare the next generation of young people for effective Christian service within society."

DAVID LEPILEO



Head of Primary 

"The Primary School years are incredibly formational, and we have a valuable opportunity to build strong foundations in the lives of students. We desire for students to feel a sense of a belonging, and our Primary School is a place for each child to be known and valued.

We have a team of committed, skilled and caring teachers who desire to see students engaged in their learning, connecting with others and growing in their love for God. 

In Primary we value working in partnership with families to support them in equipping this generation of learners to make a positive contribution to the world."

ADAM MESSENGER



Head of Secondary 

"The foundation of Waverley Christian College is the wonderful truth that God has made Himself known to us through Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour. We long to see our students grow in their knowledge and experience of God and to see them equipped to serve Him in this generation.

We offer our Secondary students an outstanding extracurricular and academic program and we are thankful for the shared values that we have with our parents who we are partnering with as we seek to meet each students’ individual needs. Every Secondary student has a unique contribution to make to our community and we take great joy in seeing students exercising their leadership gifts as we serve and grow together."

ANDREW BAWDEN

 

 College Captains

"In 2023, we are both excited to play our part in facilitating God’s plans for our College (Jeremiah 29:11).

We envisage a loving, genuine, non-judgmental Christian community that is unified through our Father, with a focus on an outward expression of Christ’s love for us towards each other.

Amidst new challenges, we long to see students turn to God for renewed strength and direction setting (Isaiah 40:31, Ephesians 6:10).

Through encouraging and providing consistent opportunities for acts of service, we trust that students will learn more about their own hearts, others, and God (1 Timothy 6:17-19)

In committing our own hearts and minds to walk in step with the Spirit (John 13:14-16, Galatians 5:16-17) and fulfilling the academic and spiritual ethos, we hope students are encouraged to take their next steps in their respective walk with God, and become faithful disciples of Jesus, as we are all called to be (John 8:12,31-32)."
