As the Principal at Cornerstone, I have the unique privilege of hearing the stories of those students & parents who have had the College deeply impact upon their lives. This is such a thrill to witness.
The heart of the College’s mission is to provide an education for the whole child – their mind, body and spirit, and to recognize their individuality whilst developing their talents to allow them to reach their full God-given potential.
A Proverb in the Bible says; ‘Train up a child in the way they should go, and when they are older they will not depart from it.’ As part of educating your child, we desire to build into them a pathway to success in life beyond school. The adventure of life is before them, and we believe that at Cornerstone, we can provide a wonderful foundation that allows each student to achieve their best and pursue whatever their dreams are – and be people of character and contribution as they do.
So what have people been telling me recently?
‘Students are academically challenged to achieve their best’ Current Parent.
‘The teachers at Cornerstone care about your well being – not only in school related things, but out of school stuff too’. Current Year 11.
‘It’s easier to be yourself at Cornerstone, with the chance to stand out and make a difference.’ Current Senior Secondary Student
‘Very strong in working against a bullying culture and staff take positive and fruitful steps to make the College a safe environment for children to thrive in the absence of threat.’ Current Parent.
‘You can have a great school that educates, but Cornerstone is also family.’ Graduate.
‘Cornerstone is the basis of my learning, and my future dreams’ , Current Year 11 Physics Student.
‘I returned to Cornerstone Christian College because it has a spirit; an atmosphere, that is lacking elsewhere. Here students are blessed, loved, treated as precious God-created individuals, taught stewardship and given a faith foundation if they wish to take it.’ Current Staff member who has returned to the College.
This is just a taster! Cornerstone is a precious place that sometimes is easy to take for granted. I pray that you will join with me in celebrating all that the College is, and also spread the word!
