We work with families to help our children achieve their personal best intellectually, spiritually, physically, socially, ethically, aesthetically and emotionally so that may enjoy a successful school life and full life of purpose now and into eternity beyond the classroom.
We desire to see our boys and girls develop loving hearts and strong minds for God. Loving hearts and strong minds for God expressed through a desire and capacity to serve others with a spirit of love that reflects strong positive life values, virtues and character traits (See our Vision Chart).
Character development, values virtues and traits, are formed over many years and through a variety of experiences. At our purpose built Intermediate Phase Campus (Groves Campus 2) our learning community is built around educational relationships combined with new and exciting events for the students. This expands the students’ horizons while providing a Biblical Christian worldview through which to evaluate these.
Students continue to develop their reading, speaking and writing skills. Increasingly students not only learn to read, but learn through reading. Problem solving drawing on the key mathematical concepts is a major part of the Mathematics program.
Literacy and numeracy skills are applied by students to expand their knowledge of the world through undertaking focussed research and experiments to increase scientific, historical and geographical understandings.
Our vision is to see young men and women with loving hearts and strong minds for God graduate from Groves Christian College. Engaging in Intermediate Phase helps keep students along the right path (learning journey) towards developing to be everything God desires for our children.
Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV).
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
