Our Mission, Vision and Values
Excellence in Education, Christianity in Action.
To raise up a generation of God’s people who can be the thinkers, doers and world changers of tomorrow.
Our Learning Values
Our Learning Values are deeply founded on the Christian faith and provide the foundation for our community to thrive. Our values motivate and shape our behaviour and help us navigate the future we want to help create.
It all begins with relationship. It is the core of every experience. We believe that strong, positive relationships are the foundation of an enriching learning environment and are the heart of our school community.
Giving our students a voice in the learning space and treating them as social equals, excites and engages students in their learning. Together we are creating a culture of self-directed, proactive young people.
We nurture creative thinking and are excited by innovative practice and new ways of approaching learning to help each individual grow. We expect creativity to be applied to curriculum design, cultural shaping, problem solving and everything in-between.
We believe a team is stronger than the individual parts. When we collaborate together around ideas and challenges, we achieve outcomes superior than we could imagine, working alone.
We believe education is not a transaction of information but a lifelong journey of adventure and exploration. We encourage students to tackle every day with bravery and optimism, facing unknown challenges with courage and determination to help them flourish and grow.
Christianity in Action
At the heart of our school is a nurturing Christian community that imparts a profound sense of worth and purpose to our students, as they explore faith and life’s big questions.
Our Christian values not only permeate but are an active and real part of everything we do – teaching and learning, playing, pastoral care, school management, and personal interactions.
Our ability to achieve Excellence in Education is strengthened by the integrity that comes from clearly articulated Christian values in day-to-day practice. We place great importance on building collaborative relationships with students and their support networks, so we can better understand how each student learns.
Motivated by God’s love, we are intentional about nurturing and growing young people who will make a positive impact on Australian society as its future leaders. We believe that giving students a sense of belonging and connection, fosters their wellbeing and motivates them to engage with learning. This ensures they are prepared to thrive and adapt in the world outside of school.
NBCS was established in Mona Vale in 1981, by Northern Beaches Christian Centre. Their vision to build an exceptional Christian school in the Northern Beaches area, was brought to life through the dedication and generosity of many parents and friends.
The school flourished in those early years and in 1984 a building program commenced on the current campus in Echunga Road. The school has continued to evolve and grow over the years, growing to approximately 1,300 students. From simple buildings to stunningly designed learning spaces, the school has stayed true to its early vision of providing excellent education within a nurturing Christian community.
We are proud that NBCS is highly regarded by educators across the world and the local community, as a centre for excellence and innovation.
