Our Philosophy

We see our role as forming partnerships with parents to educate their children. The Bible clearly teaches that children should be brought up to base their lives on the commandments of God. Deuteronomy 6:5-7 records the greatest of all commandments: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your might”.

Within a Christian context at Kerang Christian College, we aim to nurture the growth and development of the whole person – intellectually, physically, emotionally, spiritually and socially. We believe that this growth should be firmly based on the student's growing personal relationship with God and other people.

We believe growth should be nurtured in a supportive environment that has clear boundaries within mutual respect and a healthy working relationship between parents, teachers and students. Respect involves treating other people as you would like to be treated yourself, and a discipline program which aims for restoration of relationships. We are committed to embedding a culture of child safety.  We have a zero tolerance of child abuse in our school. 

Students at Kerang Christian College are challenged to become active participants in their own educational journey. Our students are encouraged to develop a love of learning and to embrace challenges as growth opportunities.

It is our prayer and desire that every student will have a positive experience at school. A positive experience involves students developing healthy relationships, achieving their personal best, maintaining physical and emotional wellbeing and developing a greater understanding of Christian faith and character.
