A small school with a BIG vision
We provide the rich soil that enables our children to develop deep roots and flourish. Within our rural community, our small Christian school nurtures growth, giving courage to face challenge, and abundant opportunities for unique strengths to blossom. Everyone feels valued and has respect for themselves and others, and hope for the brightest future.
Our vision draws inspiration from the Parable of the Sower which is found in the gospel of Matthew 13:1-9, 18-23 in the New Testament.
A farmer sows seed in a field:
Jesus explained the story to his disciples. The seed that the farmer sows is the good news about Jesus. Not all the seed thrives, just as not all people understand the word of God and spread the message to others.
Our school is the good ground that allows all who come into contact with it to grow well. Its seeds (pupils, staff and community) are given a rich diet to thrive into the best ‘plant’ possible. Our seeds are cared for during all ‘seasons’, given support and protection when it is needed and encouragement to flourish. The plants are strong and resilient, able to live peacefully and joyfully with those around them. The rich harvest is the end result of this labour for pupils, staff and the community – the brightest of futures.
