Philippians 4:4. Chairo Christian School is a member of the Christian Education National http://www.cen.edu.au network of schools.
Chairo has qualified passionate teachers, dedicated parents, a wide range of students, exciting community events and excellent facilities. We take academics seriously and offer a wide variety of subjects … yet many schools in Australia could claim all that. So what really makes Chairo different? I believe it is the unique combination of vision, community and structure. The school logo includes the words ‘Learning with God.’ Our pioneering parents recognised how easy it was for education to deny, minimise or compartmentalise God and Jesus Christ. Chairo deliberately seeks to engage students in an education where God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, the Bible, church, parents, family and the wider community are all given appropriate importance and recognition. Chairo is a ‘parent-controlled’ school. This doesn’t mean parents do the teaching, or tell me to straighten my tie. Parent-controlled means Chairo is not governed by a church or denomination, or by the government. Chairo was started by Christian parents, for parents. These Christian parents, from various churches, wanted to influence the direction and content of their children’s education. Their passion and vision continues to impact our leadership development, classroom management, recognition of student achievement, camping program, discipline ... in fact, every aspect of school life. I invite you to learn more and see Chairo in action for yourself. Learning with God – it’s more than a motto; it’s why we do what we do.
