The school has grown in many ways since it began in 1980 when 36 students and their courageous families launched a journey into Christian education on the Sunshine Coast. Today, that journey has led to a purposeful learning community that has graduated thousands of hopeful young people making a positive difference in their families and communities.

Our purpose and success lie in valuing what matters most. That impacts our educational philosophy and our understanding of what our parents, students, staff and community value about an education provider. It is the reason why families choose NCC.

NCC’s approach to education has three foundations; character development, scholarship and Christian community.

Firstly, we partner with parents to develop a student’s character, which we believe will ultimately determine their success in all areas of life. Christian virtues such as compassion, kindness, justice, mercy and humility establish habits which form a good life.

As for scholarship, we understand that the best learning occurs in an environment of high challenge and high care. NCC has a broad curriculum with core learning in literacy and numeracy adjacent to a vast array of specialised subjects. Our formal curriculum develops through recognised stages of the learner, from curious and knowledge-hungry childhood through critical thinking and new skills of adolescence and reasoned arguments and specialised problem solving of young adulthood.

At NCC, Christian community practices are very important because we know that everyone’s well-being and resilience is dependent on our connections with others. The school’s pastoral care program is broad with all teaching and other staff focused on building positive relationships to assist students’ emotional, social and spiritual growth, allowing students to feel safe to explore new ideas, skills and contributions to the world.

Choosing a school with which to partner for the growth of your child is one of the big decisions in life. I encourage you to find out as much as possible about the NCC community, and this very special Sunshine Coast Christian School.

These co-curricular activities are designed with our students in mind and significantly enrich their educational experience at NCC.

 

 

 

 

Pastoral care is an integral part of the NCC culture and programs, having its goal as the spiritual, physical, social and emotional wellbeing of students.

Effective relationships are the foundation of vibrancy and vitality in positive wellbeing that educates the heart and the mind.

At NCC, we employ the underpinning framework of an attachment-focused school. This recognises the power of secure (safe, soothing, reassuring, and loving) attachments in a child’s life. This acknowledges the importance of family relationships and those with other significant adults. It is within this context that every staff member through authentically living their Christian beliefs and professional understanding is responsible for supporting each student.

In Junior School, class teachers play a vital role in the day to day pastoral care of students, additionally underpinned by a pastoral care support worker. In Middle School and Senior Schools, family group teachers have daily contact with students as the platform for pastoral care matters. The year level coordinators and the Deputy Heads of School provide the next level of pastoral care providing specialist coordination in overseeing the wellbeing of each age group of students. This is supported by the oversight of the Student-Protection Officers, First Aid Staff, the Director of Student Wellbeing and the Head of School.

In addition, Year Level Assemblies, Applied Christian Studies classes, weekly chapel services, service activities, year-level camps and teachable moments further shape holistic wellbeing. Value-added programs operate in each of the sub-schools to develop learning and support around topics such as character development, values, purpose, empathy, interdependency as a community, education, responsibility and self-discipline.

For students who find they are struggling with life issues, our staff provide help, empathy and support. In co-operation with parents and guardians, students are afforded assistance with referral to specialist professional wellbeing support when needed.

Parents and guardians are encouraged to contact us at any time and should never allow themselves to feel disengaged from this crucial network of support. All staff members are available to our College families to listen and help and ensure that students aim to achieve their full potential as they study at NCC.

 
 
For our staff, students and families we encourage a life that lives by these values:
Kindness – Demonstrating a generous heart; being thoughtful and considerate.
Justice – Being committed to justice and fairness; doing what you can to create a more equitable world.
Mercy – Extending grace and forgiveness; being empathetic and compassionate.
Humility – Being modest and respectful; caring for others.
To be a community that is known for its Christian integrity and leadership in creating graduates that are decent, compassionate and capable of leading lives of passion, value and contribution.
“To provide a secure and supportive Christ-centred learning community, where a commitment to excellence, creativity and service is encouraged and modelled.”

Service Trips to Normanton North Qld, St George Qld, Malawi, India and Fiji.

Vocational Education and Training or VET refers to education and training that focuses on delivering the skills and knowledge required for a wide range of industries. VET in schools is about gaining practical work-related skills to equip students for the world of work while they are at school.

At NCC, our commitments to students in this area extend to the development of award-winning Hospitality and highly experienced professionals involved in program delivery.

VET in Schools courses enables students to earn credit towards a nationally recognised VET qualification while they complete the general education curriculum or work towards a senior secondary certificate.

VET Subjects at a Certificate, I or II levels, do not contribute to an ATAR but can provide students with a Vocational Qualification Certificate, a Tertiary Entrance Rank and points towards their Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE).
