About Landsdale Christian School
Landsdale Christian School offers quality Christian education for students from Kindergarten to Year 11, with full approval to introduce Year 12 commencing in 2017. Nestled in a secluded bush setting, and on the doorstep of the Landsdale Gardens and Corimbia estates, our school provides a safe and secure environment within which children can grow and develop to their full potential.
Based on the belief that the student is best served if home and school work together, parents are encouraged to take an active interest in their child???s education and to become involved as much as possible in school life. Families are able to participate in a variety of community engagement and extra curricula activities throughout the year, forming a strong sense of community spirit and support.
Established in 1987, we are part of a worldwide Christian education system, one of the largest private school systems in the world. The Seventh-day Adventist church operates 5846 schools with a total enrolment of over one million students worldwide. Across Australia there are 60 Adventist schools educating over 12 000 students, providing a network of resources to give your child a quality education.
We are guided by several underlying beliefs
??? A holistic approach to the development of spiritual, mental, physical and social wellbeing of each child
??? The need to provide for the individual needs of students in all aspects of school life
??? Education based on Biblical principles
??? The importance of instilling Christian values such as cooperation, kindness, honesty, integrity, compassion and service to others through example, instruction and opportunities to serve
??? Provision of nurture, care and positive discipline
Landsdale Christian School has two overarching goals.
Special Character – Bible-based, Christ-centred, Service-oriented, Kingdom-directed
Landsdale Christian School is a community of faith and learning. Every student has the opportunity to encounter Jesus on a daily basis through worship, prayer, the Encounter Bible Curriculum, and the Christian teachings that are integrated into all learning areas, allowing all learning to occur through a Christian world view. This is supported by a comprehensive chaplaincy service that is offered to students and their families.
School of Excellence
Every student is provided with a learning program aimed at achieving to their potential in all areas ??? academic, physical, social/emotional and spiritual. This is monitored through testing that measures learning over time to ensure that each student is making progress towards personal learning goals.
Through the Australian Curriculum and based on the needs of individual students, strong emphasis is placed on core Literacy, Numeracy and Information and Communication Technology skills. Our teachers ???go that extra mile??? to ensure students are given the academic and personal support needed, allowing students to work at a level that best suits their learning needs, and therefore reaching their personal best. Students are provided with rich learning opportunities that allow them to apply key concepts to solve problems and develop critical thinking skills. The school???s detailed reporting process ensures parents are fully aware of their child???s progress and learning needs. Values are taught intentionally and incidentally across all learning areas, and form an integral part of the learning opportunities provided to students.
