Building, Growing, Empowering
We endeavour to build our students, staff and community in the Love of our Lord Jesus Christ, in relationships with each other and in knowledge, both academic and scriptural. Getting the foundation right is the most important part of building and that is what we are endeavouring to achieve in our school.
‘…the authority the Lord gave us for building you up rather than pulling you down, I will not be ashamed of it’ (2 Corinthians 10:8).
‘Every house is built by someone, but God is the Builder of everything’ (Hebrews 3:4).
We aim to grow our students, staff and community in knowledge, love, tolerance, understanding and unity. As our relationships grow firstly with Jesus and then each other, we are able to be united for the benefit of our entire school. Growing requires nurturing, feeding, pruning and patience. At HopePoint Christian School we endeavour to promote all these steps to grow together.
‘…speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into Him who is the Head, that is, Christ.’ (Ephesians 4:15).
When we have built and grown our students, staff and community, they become empowered. With confidence they can begin to build, grow and empower others. We encourage them each to seek and find the God given gifts they possess and to use them to reach their potential and fulfil the plans God has already set out for them.
‘A wise man has great power and a man of knowledge increases strength.’ (Proverbs 24:5)‘We have not stopped praying for you and asking God to fill you with knowledge and His will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding…that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please Him in every way; bearing fruit in every good work, giving in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with power according to His glorious might…’ (Colossians 1:9-11).
SCHOOL MOTTO AND CORE VALUES
Compassion, Unity, Integrity
HopePoint Christian School’s motto is ‘In Spirit and Truth’ and is taken from John 4:23. We seek to educate children for eternity, encouraging them to view every endeavour as an opportunity to worship God the Father through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Our Core Values are displayed in our everyday existence at HopePoint Christian School.
Compassion is encouraged through our Peer Support Program; Buddy System; Anti Bullying Program: Daily Devotions; inclusive behaviour and generally looking out for each other. Our staff and students demonstrate this very well everyday.
Supporting each other in our Biblical beliefs and being united through the Love of God are areas that demonstrate unity in our school. When we are in God’s divine plan, it is easy to be united. When we break away from the master plan, disunity ignites.
Being honest, reliable, consistent, courteous, disciplined and responsible are some of the values we encourage at HopePoint Christian School. Demonstrating integrity is vital to us being examples to others. When we don’t reach the mark, compassion and forgiveness are then demonstrated.
