Statement of philosophy

The primary goal of Henderson College is to provide a warm, caring, Christian environment where all children can learn to relate positively to students, staff, and other adults. The school recognises the uniqueness of each individual and priority is given to helping each child develop socially, spiritually, emotionally, academically, and physically to provide a balance for life skills and life’s choices. As a result of our belief in the holistic approach to education, we emphasise the importance of developing a healthy lifestyle.

As Henderson College is a Christian school staff members are dedicated to encouraging students to develop a love for God and a saving relationship with Jesus Christ which will be expressed in unselfish service, self-discipline, and a better understanding of Biblical principles by which to make decisions.

Opportunities will be provided for children to develop:
  • academic excellence
  • advanced physical skills
  • positive social adjustments
  • sound peer relationships
  • confidence and self-worth
  • problem-solving strategies
  • Christian values
  • a sense of pride in themselves, their school and their environment
The programs of, and teaching in, Henderson College support and promote the principles and practice of Australian democracy, including a commitment to:
  • the elected government
  • the rule of law
  • equal rights for all before the law
