Our Principal

Welcome and thank you for showing interest in William Carey Christian School.

William Carey Christian School was founded in 1984 with only 4 students as the realisation of the vision of a small group of committed families who saw the need for a Christian school in the Liverpool and Campbelltown region. Since this small start in a local church hall, we have grown to become a Prep to Year 12 co-educational school community of over 1300 students, offering a wide range of learning opportunities, and challenging and supporting all of our students to excel in their own growth and success.

William Carey Christian School is committed to transforming lives by the proclamation of the gospel and the delivery of an excellent, Christian education; accessible to the whole community.

Our students grow in understanding of living God’s way in God’s world as God’s image. We offer a wide range of subjects that are taught with a biblical perspective. Students participate in Biblical Studies lessons and experience the positive impact Christian lives have on others.

Learning is the focus of all activity. All our students are well-known and are encouraged to learn with a growth mindset. Learning occurs through ICT-rich, differentiated, and engaging programs, delivered by teachers who are well informed by student data and evidence-based educational research. We offer a wide range of sporting and extracurricular opportunities to complement the subjects taught in class.

Students learn best in an inclusive, supportive and safe learning community and environment. Our school’s pastoral care and welfare programs equip and support students in their learning, promoting a strong sense of belonging and in building godly relationships with each other and the community, to meet life’s challenges now and in the future.

I firmly believe that schools have a key role in partnering with families to prepare students for adult life in a rapidly changing world. As such, our students learn and develop attributes that will equip them well for their future. We work alongside families to grow in our students the attributes of understanding, creativity, clear communication and collaboration, respect, service and leadership, and in making wise and courageous choices. This holistic approach to student learning provides a strong start to life.

Our school’s motto, “Expect great things from God, attempt great things for God” was coined by William Carey, who devoted his life to mission in India and is considered to be the “father of modern missions”. We trust in what God has done and has promised to do and, in turn, we inspire our students to respond and trust in God and the gifts he has given them, so as to grow and excel at school and to attempt great things now and in their futures.

I invite you to learn more about our school by exploring this website or contacting us directly to arrange a visit to our school.
