Message from the Head of Primary
Embraced, engaged, encouraged and empowered! That’s our aim for students at Plenty Valley Christian College.
The Primary School is a place where students can explore who they are as learners; where they will be challenged and can challenge themselves, knowing that they will be nurtured and encouraged along their learning journey. Plenty Valley Christian College confidently bases all that we do on the firm foundation of the Christian faith, believing that God has lovingly created each child. Understanding that each child is unique and wonderfully made is crucial to structuring learning opportunities for all our students.
We embrace the Primary Years Program (PYP) of the International Baccalaureate (IB) as an internationally recognised education curriculum, that provides scope and opportunity for the outworking of the Christian faith. The PYP calls for students to “become active, caring, lifelong learners who demonstrate respect for themselves and others and have the capacity to participate in the world around them” (www.IBO.org), and that is exactly who we want our students to be!
Our staff; expertly trained and constantly updating their knowledge, truly care that each child in our school is encouraged, nurtured and challenged. They are a team committed to providing high quality education that is rooted in their own Christian faith.
I warmly invite you to come along to Plenty Valley Christian College and begin your journey together with us.
Mrs Lily McDonald
Assistant Principal – Head of Primary
