Rivercrest Christian College
Imagine a campus uniquely and specifically designed for the conceptual age.
Imagine a curriculum that is grounded in 21st century thinking, while still encompassing a strong Christian world view.
Rivercrest is a College where technology is fully integrated into the framework of the curriculum; the learning will promote critical and creative thinking; the learning spaces will be tailor-designed to facilitate such learning and the graduates will be life-long learners, equipped to play their role in the local and global community.
This curriculum concept will match that of internationally validated inquiry based curricula. Such programmes will be on offer at both Junior, Middle and Senior levels.
The mission of Rivercrest Christian College is to partner with parents and the wider community to help develop within each student the ability and desire to find and fulfil the will of God for their lives.
The College offers human and practical resources, a unique environment and opportunities to develop the gifts and talents God has given to each member of the College community. Specifically, each student will be encouraged to develop Christian character as they pursue excellence at an academic, creative and practical level, all of which are valuable.
We would invite you to consider this campus as one which will serve the needs of your children, both now and for the future.
Primary Years Programme (PYP)
Rivercrest is an authorised International Baccalaureate World School offering the Primary Years Programme (PYP). These are schools that share a common philosophy – a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Rivercrest Christian College believes is important to our students.
Rivercrest supports the mission statement of the International Baccalaureate (IB), which aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to 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.
Middle Years Programme (MYP)
Rivercrest's NEW Middle Years Campus caters for students from Year 6 - Year 10. The curriculum builds upon the knowledge, conceptual understandings and skills addressed in our Primary Years.
All students participate in our spiritual, social and emotional skills programme, SALT.
The curriculum framework is based on an inquiry approach to learning with a strong emphasis on problem solving and real world application. Students are challenged to explore ideas and issues of local and global significance. Developing the skills to be both independent and collaborative is an essential part of the curriculum.
