Pre-Kindy to Year 12
Co-Educational Christian School

Richmond Christian College is founded on Christian faith and biblical principles that esteem partnering with parents, academic rigour, cultural relevance, and the inherent value of every student as pillars for educational success. Graduate success is defined by a student’s ability to overcome and maximise their giftings as they strive to contribute positively to their world.

Our key objective is to provide our students with opportunities that are flexible and responsive to their needs and instil an enduring sense of identity, purpose and hope foundational to their future. A safe, nurturing environment where their physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing is prioritised fosters a learning culture that encourages children to be courageous, achieve their goals, think responsibly, value others and understand their intrinsic value. Our student-centred, flexible and responsive approach to education equips students with solid foundations of truth and wisdom born by experience and rigorous investigation to positively impact their local, national and global world.

We are committed to continual improvement. Therefore we value feedback from school families and members of the wider Ballina community contact us.

A Word From Our Principal

“There is no denying that the lives we lead today are exciting stories that form part of a bigger story that we all contribute to in some way or another. I believe that our stories, our experiences, mould us to become unique, valuable people. Our stories, no doubt, are also influenced by the multitude of stories that go on around us every day. These stories shape the way we view our world, and also how our world views us.

The challenge then for schools and educators that desire excellence is to provide foundations of identity, purpose and hope that enable each student to continue to write their story in such a way that it fulfills the dreams of the author and assists their readers to do the same… To be fearless in the face of failure, to do hard things time and time again, to overcome challenges that scare them… 

As a Christian school we seek to empower each student to write their story in the knowledge that they have been created intentionally by God and empowered by His faithfulness to embark on an unexpected journey that fulfills not only their hopes and dreams but the hopes and dreams of those around them.

Perspective Not Formula

Perspective Not Formula

Sep 12, 2022 In our staff devotion time this week one of our teachers suggested that we must learn perspective not a formula. It certainly gave me pause. What does it look like to operate in terms of perspective, not formula? In a VUCA world that is often broken and...
