Christian schools are wonderful faith-filled communities, where children are cared for and thrive.
Activists are working tirelessly to misrepresent Christian schools and stop them from influencing the next generation for Christ.
They will not stop. They oppose biblical truth.
People like you who are, or have been, the beneficiaries of Christian schooling should speak up now to defend Christian schools. If you don’t, the mission of Christian schools could be thwarted. They may even be shut down.
You have the right to choose an education for your child that reflects your Christian beliefs. This is a key part of the right to freedom of religion that is enshrined in international law.
If you, your child, or grandchild has had a positive experience at a Christian school – recently or in the past – please share a few words to say so.
Thank you for standing up for our Christian schools!

I taught as a teacher at St Patrick's College, Launceston as well as at public high schools and the pastoral care for individuals there stood out in comparison. Christian schools are real family orientated communities that seek to do good and look out for each other especially the vulnerable as Jesus has taught us. They also teach social justice and care for the poor in practical ways. This is non-existent in public schools.
My Children and now my grandchildren have and are attending NBCS. I built some of the first redoubtables for our school back in the early 1980s. To be unable to continue with the current way NBCS is run and addresses all issues of life and behaviour would be unacceptable to say the least. Our ability to have our faiths belief system as a hallmark to how things should be addressed is of paramount importance.
My time at Waverley Christian College taught me how to be someone with integrity and taught me how to love others, it did this by instilling biblical values and encouraging students to understand what it means to live a life for God and others. I attended 4 different schools across my schooling years and while I received a good education at each place, Waverley Christian College also taught me how to be a good person and to be thoughtful about my faith.
My children attended a Christian school in southern Africa and now my grandchildren attend a Christian school in Brisbane. Their values are based on the Word of God, not our polluted society values!!
Our 'adopted' granddaughters have been attending Citipointe for a few years and very often sing the school's praises when visiting us. They are mostly achieving A's and are very disappointed when they come home with a B. They both take education very seriously and the Christian influence has greatly enhanced their self-esteem as well as nurtured consideration and kindness toward each other.
