A Christian Perspective
Throughout the school, faith, grace, hope, joy, humility, servanthood, love, peace, truth, purity and justice are the values we seek to embed in the ways we think and act.
Our school values are developed through our relationship with Jesus Christ and with others. Through morning devotions, Christian Studies lessons, chapel services, camps, and particularly the curriculum and classroom discussions and activities, the students are encouraged to consider their own faith journey with a God who loves them.
Christian education at St Paul's is based upon the underlying belief that our future is in Christ. Students are challenged to think about the gospel of Jesus Christ and its relevance to both their personal life and to our wider society. The school curriculum reflects an integrated approach to learning about the Christian faith. This involves specific instruction in the teachings of the Bible, reflection on their implications across the academic curriculum and a wide range of co-curricular and community activities undertaken from a Christian perspective.
The Christian Living faculty provides students with a basic biblical framework, ethics and values education and an overview of world religions. Chapels acknowledge the centrality of God to our life as a school community and provide an experience of Christian worship. Service learning opportunities help students to see the possibilities and needs for Christian compassion in a needy world.
