Vision of Faith
We believe every child has God-given gifts and talents and we invite children, through their learning, to engage with God’s big story and find what is unique for them.
Everything we do at King’s is driven by our motto, ‘Visio Fidei’ - our Vision of Faith. From creating a safe and vibrant environment for students to explore, challenge and grow, to dedicated staff providing excellence in education, with the single focus of helping your child to be the best they can possibly be.
Our Vision of Faith provides excellence in teaching and learning in a faith-based community, where every student is provided with a breadth of opportunities; empowering individuals in partnership with their families.
No matter where you are on your personal faith journey, King’s is a welcoming Christian community. Christian values and faith permeate our teaching methodology and infuse conversations in classrooms. Our teachers include daily devotions or Christian songs with the children and our weekly chapel services reflect and honour God.
Our core values embrace the FISHER principles: Fairness, Integrity, Service, Humility, Excellence, Respect and Responsibility. We are committed to a comprehensive approach to the education of each and every student in our care.
These principles provide the foundation and framework for all that we do at King’s. Students learn how to regulate emotions and develop empathy for others. They are supported to establish and build positive relationships, make responsible decisions, work effectively in teams, handle challenging situations constructively and develop leadership skills.
Where everyone is welcome, as we believe that living life is better, together.
King’s is Jesus-centred community that inspires hope by creating opportunity for people and families to do life better, together. A community venture by both King’s Baptist Grammar School and King’s Baptist Church to be better, together by providing the local community with more than just church and school.
To live out our vision of faith - providing excellence in teaching and learning that empowers individuals in partnership with families.
To steward the time given to us to champion resilience, opportunity, and an enduring sense of hope; delivering child-centred learning through innovative programs in partnership with the King’s Community.
