Calderwood Christian School and Calderwood Christian School Prep are operated by Illawarra Christian Education.
Illawarra Christian Education schools are based on the concept that the education of children is primarily a parental responsibility and not simply the responsibility of the State (Deut 6:4-7). Our schools are an extension of the Christian home, with home and school working in partnership in the education of the child, as detailed in our Vision and Mission Statements and Educational Creed.
Our model of education provides for this responsibility to be shared with the teaching staff which has been delegated authority through the Illawarra Christian Education Association, composed of Christian parents. Parents and teachers work in partnership as they provide for the spiritual, emotional, social, intellectual and physical wellbeing of the child.
Our model provides parents (through membership of the Association) with the capacity to directly influence their children’s education.
The Board is responsible for the financial and overall governance of the schools and the overall management of the Association. Any full member of the Association is eligible for election to the Board. Board members are elected to a three year term.
Policies provide advice for schools, students, parents and the wider school community on the provision of education services and decision-making processes at Illawarra Christian Education. Not all school policies are listed, but are available from the School office.
Calderwood Christian School is bound by the policies as set out by its governing body, Illawarra Christian Education.
We’re a growing school for a new and growing community.
We run regular tours and open days for parents and students to have a taste of life at Calderwood. We’d love to welcome you to one of them soon!Book a Tour
