Teaching and Learning Approach
We believe that children always learn best in a nurturing and caring environment and this is a feature of Kingsway Christian College.
Children are encouraged to achieve their best by challenging themselves to set achievable goals in the context of a safe environment where Christian teachers are dedicated and enthusiastic professionals.
Beginning in Kindergarten the school has a strong focus on literacy and numeracy.
Dedicated Programmes in Maths and English are applied throughout the Primary years and students are taught by specialist teachers in music, art, sport and languages studies.
In the Middle Years from Year 7 -9 Kingsway Christian College engages students in a variety of learning programmes that are structured to stimulate and challenge students.
There is a wide range of subject choices in the Secondary years, including extension classes for gifted students wanting additional challenges.
Senior School opportunities include engagement in English, Health and Physical Education, Languages, Mathematics, Science, the Arts, Technology and Social Sciences. Kingsway provides highly qualified, able staff to deliver these quality learning experiences.
Students can select from Tertiary Study courses which facilitate university entry, whilst others will choose courses leading to Vocational Training such as TAFE.
