Mission Statement

Henderson College is a Seventh Day Adventist learning community where students are inspired to discover a faith in God and develop their God given gifts.

Our Purpose is, through excellence in education, to develop people of integrity and Christian character.

Statement Of Philosophy
Henderson College offers a program based on the Christian philosophy of God being the Creator and Saviour of the earth. The fundamental premise upon which our educational philosophy is based is the belief that this gospel touches every aspect of life. The educational programme in this school is designed so that the power of the gospel may become a reality in all aspects of the lives of students who attend.

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
