Thank you for coming by our site and that you might be considering Foundation Christian College for the education of your children. This is a great place to start your introduction to FCC. There are many education providers in the Peel Region, all offering different educational environments and experiences. So what sets Foundation apart from the rest?
At the very core of all educational institutions is an underlying world-view. World-view is our framework, which helps us interpret all that we see, hear and experience. Our moral framework is a part of this. It helps us determine what is right and wrong, and assists us in determining what is good and desirable. The distinctive of Foundation is that it is a Christian College. That means that this College embeds a Christian world-view across all our programmes and practices. It is so important to us that we partner with Christian families in helping children and adolescents identify how they see their world. The Bible is our source of truth in helping us implement our worldview. Because we believe that Christ claims all of life, even education, we can confidently and excitingly provide a rich learning experience and environment in partnership with the creator of the universe.
Part of the outworking of this core distinctive, is that Foundation Christian College values strong pastoral care of all students as well as embedding academic rigour into our programs. We realise that we all have different abilities, gifts and strengths. Through an engaging delivery of the required curriculum, our students have the opportunity to achieve to their own potential.
For some of our students, this means they are able to achieve high academic outcomes, while for other students, they learn to cope with life and accept themselves for who God has made them to be, and move into the many diverse trades and employment opportunities. As you tour the different sections of this website, you will discover the variety and depth of core and specialist courses offered, catering for all learning styles. Hence we say, your child is firmly planted and gently nurtured, so they will flourish.
Our College is a community of parents and families partnering with the College staff to enable everyone to be valued, to make progress and to thrive in life. Foundation’s community encourages strong involvement, positive friendships and meaningful interactions and support. A number of groups exist catering for the wider Foundation community, such as Foundation Friends.
You may notice that our structure is a little different to some other schools. We are a Kindergarten to Year 12 College on the one campus operating as one school. Primary School includes Early Learning, with strong and focused Kindergarten and Preprimary programmes operating from the Early Learning Centre. The Middle School caters for Years 7 through to 10. This part of the College focuses on a mixture of subject-based learning and integrated learning. Senior School caters for students in Years 11 and 12 and is seriously focused on all students achieving their WACE (Western Australian Certificate of Education).
The physical environment, set amongst shady and expansive natural Tuart groves, promotes the easy interaction between the different year levels, whilst providing a stimulating and refreshing learning environment for the College day. Many visitors comment on how appealing and striking the College grounds are, and how fortunate students are to have such beautiful and natural grounds to do their schooling in. We encourage you to organize a tour of the College today by calling one of our friendly Front Office staff or to obtain more information about our uniqueness, and discover why FCC is a great choice for your children’s education.
