It is my pleasure to welcome you to our website. The Hills Christian Community School (HCCS) is comprised of an Early Learning Centre to Year 7 Campus (which includes our new Year 7 Centre), in the village of Verdun, two minutes from Hahndorf, and a Secondary Campus at Oakbank, 4.7 kilometres away. Our new Year 7 Centre, 'in the woods' is adjacent to the Primary Campus and students are having the best year of their lives.
HCCS has inspired and taught children for over 30 years and is served by a delightful team of teachers and support staff who value children and seek to nurture young minds. The engaging learning climate promotes curiosity, discovery, independence and smiles, with respectful relationships between adults and children immediately evident. Over 520 students from the Early Learning Centre (ELC) to Year 10 attend this co-educational school.
I encourage visitors to the website to 'click on' the 3 interactive opportunites on this page. In the first video, the School features on the National television programme 'Behind The News' regarding our new 9 Acre Property and our environmental dreams. On the second video Annabelle and Tom offer an informative virtual tour, even though it is dated!
Our amazing teachers are featured on the third interactive opportunity and this video will be available on the ACARA (Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority) website. HCCS was one of 15 schools chosen from within Australia for the exemplary manner in which we are implementing the Australian curriculum. The calibre of our teachers is evident as they had no warning that they would be interviewed during the filming.
In January 2013, HCCS commenced a Secondary School at Oakbank with a Year 8 class. Enrolling a new Year 8 class each year, HCCS Secondary has grown to over 50 students in 2015 and now includes a Year 10 class. In successive years, there will be over 20 new Year 8 students enrolled every year and by 2017 the intention is to have a successful Year 8 to Year 12 'boutique' Secondary School of about 125 students and specialist staff in the future.
I invite you to contact Mrs Anita McDonald, our Enrolment Officer, if you would like to be sent a Prospectus or make a time to visit the School.
I would be pleased to welcome you personally if you are able to visit.
