Christian Education at Casino Christian School
CCS reflects and supports the Christian home, and the values and attitudes that parents would want to encourage in their children.
The school is registered with the NSW Board of Studies, Teaching and Educational Standards and is expected to meet all of their criteria, while seeking to be a consistent role model to its students and to show the love of God in every area of life.
Education at Casino Christian School is a Christ focused educational journey where we seek to provide richness to the lives of students and support their families. All our staff are committed Christians who want the best for every child in the school, developing a Christian worldview through each of their subject areas.
One of the key cultures of the learning environment we seek to develop in students is that they are here to learn, that this is a place where their desire to learn and advance their education will be supported. It gives great joy to staff when new students comment on the freedom they have to learn away from distracting influences.
We believe that children at CCS have different gifts and abilities and that every student has the capacity to move forward in their education. Out staff strive for students to make the most of their education and to improve in both the things that they excel at and those that they find difficult.
The school/home relationship is critical for a strong learning environment for students. Working as partners – parents in close dialogue with staff – develops the best educational outcomes for students. Parents are always welcome in the school and we value the contribution they make to our community.
Our school is a ministry of the Casino Presbyterian Church that caters for all families (interdenominational) who desire Christian education for their children.
