Our Specialist Teachers are passionate about their field

We are blessed to have amazing Teachers who are Specialists in Outdoor Education, Music, Drama, French, Phys. Ed, Christian Education and Digital Technology!

Outdoor Education

Outdoor Education elective offers the opportunity for students to engage in a range of outdoor activities that pose challenges and encourage students to step outside their comfort zone. 

Activities include: Kayaking, Rock Climbing, Mountain Biking, Hiking. ATAR ODE also includes students gaining their Skippers Ticket and Scuba Certificate. We are currently the only school in the Peel Region to offer a Scuba Diving Certificate for the Year 12 Course. 

Students are introduced to simple risk assessment models to assist decision making and apply safe practices to cope with challenging situations and environments. Students plan for outdoor experiences, participate in these experiences and reflect on their involvement. They understand the main styles of leadership and how to use strategies to promote effective groups. They enhance personal and group skills and build confidence, empathy and self-understanding. 

Note: Students are required to pass entry tests prior to being accepted into the elective. Places are limited to a maximum of 19 students per year group. 

Students are required to have a level of fitness for each outdoor activity as per government policy and school policy. Students will need to successfully complete the fitness tests to enroll in the Outdoor Education course elective.


Our Music Team have been tutored in the Kodály Music Education where our students as young as Kindergarten learn music rhythms and timing starting with using their voice as the primary instrument. 

Each year the syllabus is built upon so students are ready to be part of the Strings Programme in Year 3. 

Year 3 Students are given the choice to learn the Violin, Viola or Cello and take home their own instrument for the year. After this families can opt to continue learning their instrument through our Music Tuition programme.

Our Music Team, led by Mrs Kristin Abercrombie, have developed our amazing music programme to include:

  • Year 3 Strings Programme
  • In-school private tuition for: 
  • Voice 
  • Piano 
  • Strings {Viola, Violin and Cello} 
  • Brass {Trombone, Trumpet and Euphonium}

All Music tuition sessions are held during school hours in our amazing Performing Arts Centre tuition rooms.

Our Primary Choir is a popular group and each year students from Year 3 are invited to audition. 

The Primary Choir has been performing at the Police Remembrance Day Service for many years and regularly visits local retirement villages at Christmas time to sing to residents. The Primary Choir also leads at each Primary and often Whole College Worship. 

Secondary School Students can be part of the Secondary Vocal Ensemble. This team leads our Secondary Worship and joins with our Primary Choir to lead in Whole College Worship. 

Applications for our Music Programme can be found in the Notices section of our College App.  

At Foundation Christian College we have Ensembles in:

  • Strings
  • Brass and Woodwind
  • Guitar
  • Secondary Vocal
  • as well as multiple Primary Choirs

We have a very successful Drama Programme, led by Mrs Angela Angelos.

In 2023, the College will host a production of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Jnr.

In 2021 we enjoyed two productions: A Primary Production called "Do-Little" and a Secondary Production called "Rumplestiltskin". Both events were successful and highly regarded by audiences. 

In 2022, 4 of our Drama Students received places to compete in the Camming Shakespeare Competition. 

Congratulations to TJ Ruwodo for receiving third place and Esther Son for receiving an Honorable mention!

Phys. Ed.

Sport is an important part of our College Community. Students are encouraged to be active and our Phys. Ed. Teachers work hard with our students teaching them, not only the sport itself, but also the correct techniques and rules when participating.

Inter-School Sport Competitions

PSSA - Primary School Sports Association

Our Primary Students are now part of the PSSA  where they compete against Primary Schools in the Peel Region in AFL, Hockey, Volleyball, Netball and Soccer. These competitions take place during Terms 1 and 2.

Interschool Athletics

Our Students compete in various interschool competitions in Western Australia. Our Primary School competes through WACSSA (WA Christian Schools Sporting Association) in Athletics, Swimming and Cross-Country.

Secondary School Students compete in the ACC (Associated and Catholic Colleges) competitions. The Associated and Catholic Colleges of WA is one of the largest independent school sporting associations in Australia. We have participated successfully in their Athletics, Cross-Country, Swimming, Basketball and Soccer competitions.


Our Primary School students from Years 1-6 learn French from our very own Madame Pesch.

Primary Students attend weekly lessons in their own French room! 

Secondary Students can continue their French lessons as an elective.

Christian Living

Not only are our students taught the Australian Curriculum with a Christ-centred world view by their class teachers, but also have Christian Living Specialists who visit each Class to work with students to develop their understanding of the Bible and the importance of applying Jesus' lessons in everyday life.   

Digital Technology

Digital Technology is an important part of our Students learning. 

Our DT Specialist teaches students how to use their laptops wisely and safely to produce great work!
