It is a great joy and blessing to serve as Principal of OCS. To be part of such a vibrant and committed community reminds me daily of the privilege it is to work in Christian education. We are a school who believes that community is built on strong relational foundations, underpinned by prayer and bound together by a commitment to our strategic vision.
Our staff team is dedicated to helping students prepare for their future, whilst actively engaging in learning that is relevant for today. Through a unique educational experience, that blends biblical truth with academic rigour, students can develop a strong understanding of the world in which they live, and finding their place in contemporary society.
OCS is built upon 3 core pillars, with each of these honoured both philosophically and practically within the school context:
– Christian Discipleship
– Academic Excellence
– Parent Partnership
These pillars, together with our vision and mission statements, guide and shape our school. They help us steer our course and achieve the ambitious goals in our Strategic Plan. Equally, they help us remain open and flexible in considering new ideas and to face new challenges in our ever-changing world. They provide a solid and stable base upon which to build and grow. In other words, we have taken considerable time to think through who we are as a school, what we believe to be important in a 21st century Christian education, and what that looks like in your child’s day to day school experience.
I would love to have the opportunity to speak further with you about our school. It is a topic about which I am most passionate! Alternately have a good look around our website and social media sites to see some of the evidence of the life and learning at OCS. We believe that you will see … effective leaders of godly character, who can blend academics with biblical truth, to influence society for the glory of God. (OCS Vision Statement)
Yours in Christ,
