In 2002, Livingstone Christian College welcomed its first cohort of students; a grand total of seven. Today it is responsible for the education and care of more than one thousand. It was the second school to be owned by Christian Community Ministries (CCM).
Facilities at Livingstone include a Trade Training Centre, a Childcare Centre [also offering Before and After School care as well as Vacation Care], fully air-conditioned classrooms, a state-of-the- art Resources Building, and modern, well equipped specialist rooms. Pre-Prep is offered on a long day basis, or as a school hours program – also in modern teaching facilities.

Livingstone is member of the non-denominational CCM (Christian Community Ministries) Group, which operates eleven successful schools in Queensland – with others in New South Wales and South Australia. It is a member of ISQ (Independent Schools, Queensland).
Curriculum at Livingstone is designed to be engaging and relevant for 21st century learners. We offer a diverse range of subjects including academic, vocational and trade pathways. Our curriculum is Christ-centred and Bible-based, whilst also meeting all government and tertiary entrance requirements. The College desires for all students to engage in a balanced and exemplary targeted learning program permeated with the skills and processes that develop literacy, numeracy, life-skills, creativity and critical thinking.

Curriculum delivery is supported by excellent modern teaching facilities including Mac labs for specialist Music and Media subjects, a fully equipped gym, specialist Science, IT, Home Economics and Art facilities, Dance and Drama studios and a Trade Training Centre.

Livingstone is a member of the Association of Gold Coast Colleges which provides students with quality  weekly opportunities for interschool sporting competition. Teams also compete in a variety of other regional and district competitions. In the area of the Arts, the Livingstone Arts Academy provides co-curricular programs in Dance, Drama, Speech and Instrumental Music.

Our dedicated team of Chaplains support the flourishing of our children socially, emotionally and spiritually. Students are not only limited to curriculum, they are also nurtured through weekly chapel services, ‘A Big Year’ monthly values program, mentoring programs and visiting speakers from local churches and Christian organisations. Students are given the opportunity to serve and be involved in these programs and are also encouraged to undertake mentoring programs to become inspring leaders themselves.
Our aim is to provide Christ-centred schooling in an atmosphere of love, respect, peace and discipline which will encourage students to achieve their potential for God.

Livingstone runs an established fleet of 15 buses to all areas surrounding the College and further. We service as far down as Nerang in the south, over to Runaway Bay in the east and then up as far north as Loganholme and Edens Landing to Cedar Creek/Logan Village in the west. We also offer a free pick up and drop off service to Ormeau Train Station. Livingstone currently offers door to door service to all of our students of Primary School age and varying options for Secondary year level students based on their living location. All of our buses have seat belts and are air-conditioned and we pride ourselves on offering the best service possible. Our bus staff are committed to their positions and have regular training throughout the year to keep them up to date with all legal requirements as well as Livingstone standards.

For further information regarding our bus service please contact Margaret Jackson at the College on 5540 8659.



Here's what our parents have to say...

  • Livingstone is a blessing to my kids and my family. The teachers bring out the very best in my children, the Christian Curriculum is solid, and the extra curricular activities are amazing.

[Stacey – Ormeau]

• We selected Livingstone because of its wonderful caring Christian teachers, and because of the excellent extra-curricular activities on offer. 

[Gary and Annette, Ormeau Hills]

• Livingstone is an amazing school. It is well managed, organized and disciplined. Inclusive and multicultural in character, it has accepted our kids with open arms.

[Shawn and Hexie – Ormeau Hills]

• The commitment, dedication and support from the staff at Livingstone is outstanding. I love volunteering at our school as I get to be part of a community environment. I can start from my kids in Prep and follow their schooling journey all the way through to graduation.

[Brett and Kathy – Ormeau] 





Welcome to Livingstone Christian College.

We hope you will find us to be a place where every child flourishes. A place where your child will flourish.

We have placed emphasis on four broad areas to ensure any child can flourish, regardless of their unique strengths. These emphases are on academic achievement, sporting development (where we focus on a few key sports) and, the performing arts and community (which includes trade training, preparing students for the Asia Century and being a responsible local citizen). Within these four broad areas, we believe that every child can experience success and grow in confidence.

At our core is trying to understand how to live and act within a Christian framework. Livingstone Christian College has a strong focus on living out the values of Jesus. We recognise that Jesus lived and talked about living in a way that was contrary to the way most people live. So, our A Big Year virtues program has a monthly cross-College emphasis on one of the big themes of Jesus that could be loving our neighbours, being generous, practicing hospitality, being faithful, loving our enemies, practicing forgiveness, serving the poor or reforming ourselves rather than others.

We hope you can see that Livingstone Christian College has a unique and strong emphasis on the development of the whole child. These emphases are embedded from our Early Learning Centre through to our Senior students, where real life opportunities are provided to ensure they are ready to succeed in life beyond school.

To achieve these ends, we have assembled a great team who are determined to be the best they can be, to ensure that your child flourishes at Livingstone Christian College. We have a strong commitment to professional development and performance management processes to ensure all staff, from our teachers to bus drivers, leaders to cleaners, are all working together to ensure that every child... your child... flourishes at Livingstone Christian College.

Yours Sincerely,


Dr. Mark Laraghy
