NORWEST CHRISTIAN COLLEGE


Norwest Christian College is a dynamic Christian educational
community catering for students from Preschool (3 year olds) and Preparatory
Class (4 year olds) to Year 12. It is set on 15 acres of rural land in
Riverstone, at the heart of Sydney’s north-west development sector. We aim to
build on the three decades of service to our community by continuing to provide
cost-effective, quality Christian schooling to Sydney’s fastest growing region.

The College’s mission is “Excellence in Education”, Christianity in
Action. College staff, parents and students form a community committed to
achieving the highest academic outcomes possible for each student, whilst
maintaining an emphasis on Christian values and a Biblical perspective. This
community also demonstrates the character of Christ in its active care and
support of its students.

Facilities: All our classrooms are air-conditioned and well
resourced with interactive whiteboards in all primary Years’ and some secondary
Years’ classrooms. The College has an extensive computer network providing
students with ready computer access to resources and lesson materials from both
inside and outside the College.

The expansive grounds provide students with multi-purpose playing
fields, tennis courts and basketball courts.

The College also provides a Before- and After-School and Vacation
Care Program on the same campus enabling students to move safely and easily
between their classrooms and these facilities.

Programs: Students are encouraged to develop their creative talents
and use them for the glory of God. The College embraces Creative and Performing
Arts as part of its curriculum and provides many opportunities for students
wishing to excel and develop their passion in this area. The College’s music
program ensures that each primary student learns to play a musical instrument
and participate in one of the College’s bands.

Electives Years 9 and 10: Students in Stage 5 sit for the School
Certificate in English, Mathematics, HSIE and Science. They also have the
opportunity to specialise in a number of other subjects. The College offers
Board of Studies elective courses such as Timber, Food Technology, Photography,
Music, Elective History, Multimedia, Textiles and Drama. The school also
provides students with an additional special interest elective option with
stimulating and engaging courses such as Heroes and Villains, International
Cuisine, Forensic Science, Creative Writing, Fitness for Fun and Journalism.

Electives Years 11 and 12: Students in Stage 6 sit for the Higher
School Certificate at the end of Year 12. They study at least one English
course and a number of other courses of their own choice. The College offers a
range of standard Board of Studies courses across all Key Learning Areas.

Sport: A range of sports are catered for at the College including,
but not limited to athletics, cross-country, volleyball, AFL, football
(soccer), cricket, swimming, basketball and netball. The College actively seeks
to identify talented athletes who are encouraged to participate in regional,
state and national competitions.

Welfare and personal development: Primary students learn to be
independent and responsible in a range of contexts. The College provides a safe
environment where students are nurtured and supported as they progress on this
journey. We encourage creative thinking and present an integrated program
grounded on a Biblical world view. Individuals are valued and respected and
there is an expectation that each student will work hard and reach their
potential

Each secondary student is mentored in small CIA (Christianity in
Action) Groups and is appointed a Director of Learning who is responsible for
the welfare of their students considering their emotional, social and academic
needs. The Director of Learning is also an important point of contact for
parents.
