Why Choose a Christian School?
- Our School takes a biblical perspective towards education, one where Christian education is based on the powerful truth that each person is created and accepted by a loving God. It is underpinned by the belief that each person is unique and has been “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139) and that Christ came to bring freedom – true life, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full” (John 10:10)
Children flourish in an environment that affirms that life is not random and nor are they. Christian education is based on the solid hope that comes from the word of God, that life has meaning and purpose. As a distinctly Christian School, we believe a full and meaningful life comes through faith in Jesus Christ and from following His teachings. This wisdom is imparted to our students inviting them to see and understand life through the perspective of God’s truth.
- Jesus said:
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself”. Matthew 22:37-39 (NIV)
At SGCS we are committed to encouraging our students to be outward-looking, to be discerning, to make wise choices in life and to develop and use their unique God-given gifts and abilities in service of God and the wider community.
