RIVERCREST CHRISTIAN COLLEGE


Opened 2014 – Currently offering classes from Early Learning (3 years of age) to Year 2. Additional year levels to open annually.

Imagine a campus uniquely and specifically designed for the conceptual age. Imagine a curriculum that is grounded in 21st-century thinking, where all facets of education are connected and interlinked, and where education effectively encompasses a strong Christian world view. At Rivercrest Christian College, technology is integrated into the framework of the curriculum. Learning experiences are designed to promote critical and creative thinking. Our students will graduate as life-long learners, equipped to play their role in the local and global community. The Rivercrest curriculum will match that of internationally validated inquiry based curricula. Such programs will be on offer at Junior (ELC-Year 5), Middle (Year 6-10) and Senior levels (Year 11-12).

Facilities: All learning spaces have been carefully designed to enhance and stimulate learning. The spaces are intended to inspire engagement by creating an environment conducive to learning, discovering and exploring. All buildings are eco-sensitive, with optimal use made of natural light. Furniture too has been chosen to make learning spaces versatile and complementary to learning. The selected use of colours is intended to evoke an ecological theme and create synergy between the indoor and outdoor learning spaces. The playscapes for students are purpose-designed, so that there is interplay between the natural environment and the learning areas. The bespoke play areas are landscaped so that the native vegetation complements the undulating landform.

Curriculum: Rivercrest Christian College is a candidate school for the Primary Years Programme and is pursuing authorisation as an IB World School. These are schools that share a common philosophy – a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Rivercrest Christian College believes is important for our students. In pursuing such authorisation, Rivercrest supports the mission statement of the International Baccalaureate (IB), which aims to develop inquiry, knowledgeable and caring young people who help top create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

The IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) is a curriculum framework that caters for students from 3-12 years of age. The focus of the curriculum is the development of the whole child as an inquirer both within and beyond the classroom. The PYP is defined by six transdisciplinary themes:

1. Who we are

2. Where we are in place and time

3. How we express ourselves

4. How the world works

5. How we organise ourselves

6. Sharing the planet

The aim of the PYP is to create a transdisciplinary curriculum that is engaging, relevant, challenging and significant for all learners. Rivercrest College embraces an inquiry approach to learning within the context of a Christian worldview. Our vision is that we will be a leading provider of quality Christian education delivered by Christian staff, ensuring the Gospel message is an integral part of all we do.

Sport: All students enrolled at Rivercrest are placed into one of four Houses: Booth (Blue), Luther (Red), Fry (Yellow) or Lewis (Green). At many schools, the Houses are named after well-known people, Australian native animals, plants or some other theme. Rivercrest decided to name its Houses after four Christians who made a significant contribution to society.

Student Welfare Programs: Rivercrest has a Chaplain who works with classes, small groups and individuals to develop spiritual and emotional wellbeing. There is also a Pastoral Care Co-ordinator who supports student development. Personal and social learning is strongly embedded throughout the curriculum. Rivercrest has adopted the ‘Alannah and Madeline Foundation’s Buddy Program’.
