Why Richmond?

Our Pre-Kindy Programme is a 3-day, play-based learning class for students 4 years old and above. In this programme, students discover learning through exploration and delight. This is a fabulous way to transition your child to school and formalised learning.



What’s the Vision of Richmond?

At Richmond Christian College we aim to be a Christ-Centred Learning Community, Exploring & Impacting on God’s World.

Our mission is to assist parents in the nurture of their children, by providing a Christ-centred, biblically grounded, culturally engaging and academically rigorous education that instils hope and equips children to live for God’s glory.

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 the unique valuable people that we are. 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. 

– Jonathon Simmons

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy;

I have come that

they may have


and have it to the FULL”

– John 10:10


God gives us life, the Bible actually says he gives us abundant life – full life, but it does also say that often people and things try to take that life from us, but God challenges us to live life like it was a race and to run the race to win it.

Mr. Simmons says, “My challenge for the Richmond Christian College student this year is to begin the journey, the unexpected journey. To be fearless in the face of failure, to do hard things time and time again, to take on challenges that scare them or they think are way too hard.”

Let this year be the beginning of your never-ending unexpected journey.
