At Nambour Christian College, academic excellence meets Christ-centred learning. Our co-educational College offers an outstanding private school education from Prep right through to Year 12.

A NCC education opens minds, provides spiritual guidance and develops the unique gifts of each student. Since our inception in 1980, this enriching and holistic approach to education has seen NCC develop a respected reputation for achievement in all areas of academia, as well as arts and sports.

The curriculum at NCC is constantly reviewed to provide our 1,100 students with new learning opportunities. We support classroom learning with first-class facilities, outdoor education and co-curricular activities ranging from music to sports and performing arts.

As student’s progress from Junior through to Middle and Senior School, our community supports them while they discover a lifelong love of learning, find their confidence and develop strength of character.

Following the opening of NCC early learners – an on-campus early education centre – we now support the educational and spiritual development of children from as young as 15 months. Our early learners make a smooth transition from childcare to Prep, forming friendships that last throughout their school years and beyond.

Founded on the values of tradition, faith and a commitment to academic excellence, NCC builds a strong foundation for the future of every student.

Internationally, nationally and on the Sunshine Coast, Nambour Christian College provides a diverse range of opportunities for students to be involved in co-curricula activities.

These can be broadly grouped into the following areas:

  • Music
  • Sport
  • Creative and Performing Arts (CAPA)
  • Dance
  • Outdoor Education
  • Service Trips
  • Cultural Exchange
  • Other

Students are challenged to develop their gifts and talents and to consider ways in which they can lead and serve others both within and outside the school community.

As you will find on the following pages, there are numerous opportunities for our students to be part of and enjoy a broad range of experiences.

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





Our sister school, Gulf Christian College, Normanton, operates to Year 9 and once students graduate from Year 9 at GCC, the opportunity exists for them to enrol in Senior School (Years 10, 11 and 12) at Nambour Christian College. As GCC students visit Nambour at least three times per year throughout their Middle School years, the transition to boarding at NCC is smooth and familiar.

NCC has provided boarding to international and remote rural students for many years. This has been through a highly successful ‘Homestay’ program.

NCC offers residential boarding to Senior School students (Years 10 to 12) on the NCC campus. The group of students board together, reducing the challenges associated with attending a remote boarding school and building on relationship.

The boarding house will allow for a maximum of 2-3 students per bedroom, supervising staff and extensive indoor and outdoor living areas. The NCC Boarding house parents, academic tutors and co-curricular staff will provide experienced and compassionate support for the students in a large family unit where each student will enjoy a real sense of belonging.

The College study, cultural and sporting facilities will be adjacent to the boarding house. These include a fully equipped gymnasium, indoor sports centre, playing fields, library and instrumental music centre.

Boarding students can be involved in a multitude of co-curricular activities including sporting programs, performing arts programs and the College farm

Christian education embodies much more than academic and sporting excellence.  Whether in the Junior or Secondary School, Pastoral Care is an integral part of the school program, having as its goal the spiritual, emotional, social and physical wellbeing of students.

Effective Pastoral Care requires much more than simply having a Chaplain on staff.  At NCC the practical and impartial support of our entire student body necessitates the willing participation of every staff member as they prayerfully model and teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ on a daily basis.

In Junior School, class teachers play a vital role in the day to day Pastoral Care of students.  In the Middle and Senior Schools, Family Group teachers have daily contact with students – caring, sharing devotions and praying.

The College Year Level networks are the next level of Pastoral Care providing a specialist coordinator overseeing the wellbeing of each age group of students.

In addition, Life Lessons and Applied Christian Studies classes, chapel services and outreach activities further shape Godly living, discipleship and community service.

For students who find they are struggling with life issues, our staff provide help, empathy, guidance and support.  In co-operation with parents and guardians, students are afforded every assistance with referral to specialised counselling 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 and are happy to listen and help in any way they can to ensure that students achieve their full potential as they study at NCC.

1) NCC will be a community of intentional connection with God
2) NCC will be a community of acceptance, forgiveness and love for all people
3) NCC will be a community of honesty and integrity
4) NCC will be a community which promotes Biblical truth and practice

8) NCC will be a community where pursuit of excellence is encouraged
9) NCC will be a community where generosity is practised
10) NCC will be a community of commitment to the understanding of, and care for, God's creation
Our vision is that Nambour Christian College will be recognised globally as a leading Christian College where students are equipped for LIFE, LIVING and DISCIPLESHIP. This is evidenced through the College Motto - 'Sow to Harvest'
“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, Thailand, Malawi and Fiji (Year 12) each year.

Our bus fleet involves 17 different bus runs covering the whole Sunshine Coast and Hinterland, from Noosa down the coast to Caloundra and inland to Beerwah, Maleny and Kenilworth.

It is my privilege to introduce you to information about the Nambour Christian College school community. I hope this prospectus will help you in your search for a school that aligns with the values you are teaching your child and provision of opportunities to support your aspirations for them.

The school has grown in many ways since its establishment 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.

NCC’s approach to education has three foundations; character development, scholarship and 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 problem solving of young adulthood.

At NCC, 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 program is broad with 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 I look forward to meeting you when you visit our college.
