A Values Education

Because we take a holistic approach to education, we nurture character development and spirituality.  Our values education program and leadership opportunities allow students to develop into well rounded and responsible citizens.  Lively weekly chapel services, class devotionals and scripture classes focus on Christian values and aim to develop self-worth and social responsibility. 

Character for Eternity
One of our primary aims within the Sydney Adventist School System is that we help your child develop strength of character and hold sound, Christian principles.

Your child will experience activities and lessons through programs and opportunities that are designed to teach the value of life and respect for others and oneself.

Developing leaders
Your child will have the opportunity to participate in several programs which offer involvement in the local community and provide students with life-changing experiences. Our school presents students with many opportunities to develop an understanding for the needs of others through classroom projects for various charities, visits to neighbouring nursing homes and preschools and several other programs.

Every child has an opportunity to lead in some way.  All classes lead in weekly assemblies and chapels which offers each child performance and leadership opportunities.

Fostering Values
Using our focus on the Bible and developing a relationship with Jesus, we are able to help your child foster the values that will shape their character as an adult. Whether your child is a Seventh- day Adventist or follows another faith, the values taught within the Adventist education system will help them develop a compassionate, caring nature with strong values and wisdom.

Through example, our teachers will help your child learn wise decision-making, respect for and acceptance of others, cooperation, willingness to meet new challenges, desire to help those in need, value for oneself and the desire to learn.
