SECONDARY DEPARTMENT

PREPARING FOR THE FUTURE

Academic Pursuits

Our school is committed to setting high standards and realistic learning outcomes for our students that meet the requirements set by NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA). The Register of School Achievement (RoSA) and Higher School Certificate (HSC) results indicate that our students have achieved outcomes that are well above state average. We also want to instill in our students why our motivation is not for our own gain but we want to achieve excellence in individual talents and abilities for the glory of God.

While being committed to providing innovative learning, we also are focused on helping students with their study skills, providing extra learning support where there are additional needs and providing many enrichment opportunities for students to explore their gifts beyond the curriculum.

 

We also provide a Senior Mentoring program for students in approaching their HSC.

Pastoral Care

NCS is committed to developing strong relationships with students. Each year, during our first week of Term 2, we spend three nights away at Anglican Youthworks (Port Hacking) on the Secondary Camp.  Students are engaged in Christian discovery. They are challenged by God’s word about where Jesus is in their lives. 

 

Year advisors and our Secondary Chaplain play an integral role in the pastoral care and discipleship of students. Our Secondary MindMatters program also provides another avenue for ensuring our students social, mental and spiritual well-being.
 

Celebrating Gifts

As a Secondary school we want to celebrate students' many gifts and talents, not only in their academic abilities but also outside the classroom. In doing so, we try our best to provide as many activities through a variety of avenues such as creative and performing arts, STEM Activities, Sport, leadership, the Duke of Edinburgh program and many other enrichment activities.

Global Citizenship

Nowra Christian School is committed to nurturing our students to be the light of the world. In doing so, our secondary students benefit from a range of extracurricular activities that help students develop skills and attitudes to prepare them for their future. They are given opportunities to participate in both internal and external leadership programs. There are also many opportunities to serve their school, local and global community.

Our Secondary students  benefit from a caring school that is small enough to recognise their individual needs while being large enough to provide a diverse curriculum and range of challenges that equips them for life beyond school. 
 
NCS is committed to pursuing academic excellence, with the teaching and learning experience being built on the foundation of biblical principles.

“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven."  Matthew 5:14 - 16

So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
