About Foundation


Foundation Christian College, located on 8.5 hectares of beautiful bush land on the corner of Lakes Road and Waldron Boulevard, Greenfields has new, constantly expanding, modern well resourced air-conditioned facilities.

Small classes are a feature of Foundation Christian College in order to provide optimum learning conditions for all students. The College offers Kindergarten to Year 12 education with a dedicated Early Learning Centre, primary school facilities, a Middle School catering for the Year 7, 8, 9 and 10 students and Senior School for Year 11 and 12. The modern facilities provide an ideal learning environment for students.

The College provides a sound educational programme in the context of the Christian Faith. All staff are committed, active Christians. All classes use a biblical context for classroom activities including daily devotions and prayer.

The College features student-centered programmes in a caring and supportive learning community. Classes are set up as learning teams with a collaborative learning philosophy embedded in our school pedagogy.

The College uses the Curriculum Framework as a basis for all learning programmes and is particularly focused on the Principles of Learning and Teaching and the Principles of Assessment. While all learning areas are developed, College staff are working towards implementing the Australian Curriculum over the coming years.

 

Foundation Christian College has a strong emphasis placed on literacy and numeracy. A whole-school approach exists with each teacher having a strong understanding of how literacy and numeracy are developed. The College is committed to, and values on-going professional development for all teachers.

 

The College invests time and energy into teaching students social and emotional skills so that a positive environment exists and is maintained both in classrooms and in the schoolyard.

The College's Pastoral Care Programme is based on developing respect for God, authority, self, each other and property.

All parents of enrolled students become members of the Foundation Christian College Association. Active parent involvement in the College life is encouraged. The College suits parents who are seeking a Christian community environment for their children, where parent participation is welcome and the unique talents of each individual child are nurtured and excellence is encouraged.
