We have been very happy with the school and think it provides a well rounded education. Not as obsessively academic as some others but not neglectful of this either. It strikes a good balance between achievement and teaching good values and our daughter's peer group seems remarkably rancour-free for a teenage cohort. 

Well done and keep up the good work, it is not easy satisfying all the competing demands of modern education.

Christian College was the right choice for our children. We love the College ethos and have met a lot of past students who also loved their time there, and have gone on to be quite successful in the careers that they chose.

Our twins have just started in Prep at Christian College and we couldn't be happier. When we met with the Principal last year, he told us that 'We take families, not individuals' and that message really struck a chord for us.
We love the pastoral care services and the College focus on the well-being and happiness of our children. Our family feels so welcome here at Christian College.

Yesterday I had a group activity at Camp Wilkin that Alcoa run in partnership with BacLinks.
What a lovely surprise it was for me when I realised Christian College were there for their music camp.
It was wonderful to hear the lovely music and see the excited children all working together because they share a common interest. The voices, strings, woodwind, percussion and brass sounded out over the camp grounds.
The happiness and joy seen on the faces of your students and staff and heard through the music they were creating made the volunteer event all the more enjoyable and I was so proud to say that my daughter goes to Christian College. The students were well mannered, well behaved and spoke beautifully when engaging with myself and my team.

Since starting at Christian College, our daughter has turned a complete 360 in everything. She is happy, loves school and is living life to the fullest. She is embracing the caring wonderful staff that you have at Christian College. From the principal, teachers, office staff down to the bus driver, everyone has made her feel so welcome. She really loves going to school. If she is struggling in a subject every teacher goes out of their way to help her. She embraces every challenge thrown at her because she knows that she will get the support the she needs.

I wanted you to know how grateful we are to EVERYONE at Christian College.
It truly is an amazing School. We are all very very happy here.

I thank you all for allowing me to be part of the Year 3 camp in Portsea, it was an uplifting experience which I am fortunate to have had and will remember forever.

Individually and collectively, you are an outstanding group of young people. The cooperation with, care for and respect of, each other is at a level way beyond your years and is a glowing reflection of yourselves and your teachers.

Last week I had the privilege of meeting two of your teachers and a group of your students at Titjikala in the Northern Territory.

I have been facilitating youth projects in the Northern Territory since 2004 and was impressed by your teachers knowledge of the area and willingness to challenge students to develop their cultural literacy. In Cassidy and Celeste you have first class educators.

The character of your students, as I had the privilege of speaking with many of them and witnessing their interactions with local community members, impressed me greatly. I encountered a group of students with deep compassion and a willingness to put themselves beyond their comfort zones to learn.

From my experience, you and your staff have a lot to be proud of.

What a fabulous show the Wizard of Oz Production was and what a great job you and all the other teachers involved did.  As I mentioned my Mum, brother and his wife travelled down from Melbourne to see the show on Friday night and they were blown away at how professional the whole show was and the amazing talent of the cast and orchestra members.  We had to keep reminding ourselves that they are primary and secondary students.  I particularly noted how well they all stayed in character, even when the spotlight was not on them, and how good their facial expressions, etc were and I put that down to the excellent preparation, coaching and direction you provide.

I can only imagine how many hundreds (or thousands) of hours you and other staff members must have put in to make it such a wonderful success and I congratulate you all on your wonderful work.

My partner and I had the pleasure of attending last night's Information Evening for Parents of Year 5, 6 & 7.  We would like to sincerely thank you for this new initiative.  We both found the evening extremely informative and very professionally put together.  It was great to hear from the variety of speakers and each contributed information that we found extremely helpful.  It is great for us to be able to hear about what is not only happening presently, but also to be able to look forward to what our girls will be involved in next year.

A great night!  We both said that "these nights are not to be missed".  We thank all the staff and the year 9 students for their involvement, we know this is an extra commitment, truly appreciated.

We would sincerely like to thank all of the staff at Christian College during our daughters transition to the Bellarine Campus this year. It was a difficult decision for her to make as she was initially very reluctant however; even before we all had made the decision the support and guidance we received from the staff made the path clear and enabled her to eventually make the decision herself. We have nothing but praise for the way Christian College has welcomed us into its family.

We have been with Christian College since Williams House Kinder and we couldn't be happier. The support that the school has shown us through hard times has been wonderful. Their high Christian values are commendable and all the dealings with staff and teachers has been a positive experience.

Your students who recently attended at our Caravan Park in South Australia, are to be congratulated on their respectful manner to other park patrons. Also the seven Cabins occupied by the students were left in a very clean and tidy state, as was our Camp Kitchen area. All in attendance were well mannered, an absolute credit to Robert Moore (the tour coordinator)  and an excellent advertisement for the Geelong Christian College.

What a beautiful occasion the College Debutante Ball was for my daughter and another 27 pairs on Friday night.  It was absolutely wonderful!

You and your band of helpers should be congratulated on putting an event together of that calibre.  The hall looked beautiful and was decorated with such class; there was abundance of food and such a great atmosphere.

My daughter had the best day and night of her life and owe this to you and your team!  She loved every minute of the actual dance lessons to the night itself.  Christian College is one of the only schools I know that  hold this type of event.  It is such a worth while occasion in a girls life to have the opportunity to participate in, especially with another large group of peers in the same year level.

Just a short note to thank you for allowing our son to be part of the ‘Our World’ trip to Alcoota.  He has not stopped talking about the great time that he had; how well everyone got along and most of all, how amazing the experience was.  His highlight, apart from working with the aboriginal children and being part of their community, was seeing Uluru in the wet – truly something that he will never forget!
