A Values Education
Because we take a holistic approach to education, we nurture character development and spirituality. In our special values education program we highlight the importance of wise decision making, and focus on positive values. Through fostering leadership skills and respect for others, students develop into well rounded and responsible citizens. Lively weekly chapel services, class devotionals and scripture classes focus on Christian values and aim to develop self-worth and social responsibility.
Character for EternityOne of our primary aims within the Seventh-day Adventist school system is that we help your child develop strength of character and hold sound, Christian principles.
Your child will experience activities and lessons through programs and opportunities that are designed to teach the value of life and respect for others and themselves.
Your child will have the opportunity to participate in several programs which offer involvement in the local community and provide students with life-changing experiences. Our school also presents students with many opportunities to develop an understanding for the needs of others through classroom projects for various charities, visits to neighbouring nursing homes and several other programs.
Some of the specific programs at Wahroonga Adventist School include:
- Peer tutoring program (lunch play activities for younger children)
- Student representative, captaincy positions and a student council provide leadership opportunities.
- Organise events and functions – learn organisation skills through ownership of entire projects.
Every child has an opportunity to lead in some way. All classes lead in weekly assemblies which gives each child performance and leadership opportunities.
From these programs your child will learn leadership skills that inspire others into action through enthusiasm and a positive approach to life.
Building an understanding
The student body in our school is made up from a diversity of backgrounds. And, although our education system is based on the Christian principles of the Bible, we teach respect for other cultures and faiths, embracing every individual in our school community.
Through this your child will develop meaningful friendships and share experiences that will develop their character.
Using our focus on the Bible and developing a relationship with Jesus, we are able to help your child foster the values that will shape their character as an adult. Whether your child is an Adventist, or follows another faith, the values taught within the Adventist education system will help them develop a compassionate, caring nature with strong values and wisdom.
Through example our teachers will help your child learn wise decision-making, respect for and acceptance of others, cooperation, willingness to meet new challenges, desire to help those in need, value for oneself and the desire to learn.
Our core values taught at Wahroonga Adventist School are:
