Years 7-10

A Rich Learning Environment

Seeing children equipped to live for God’s glory is at the core of Covenant Christian School. 

Our Secondary School is a supportive, challenging and secure learning environment which allows students to transition smoothly from their primary school experience. Our passionate and experienced Christian teachers encourage, challenge and nurture students to prepare them for a life of faithfulness, and to encounter God in each subject. 

Year 7 represents a significant transition, and Covenant provides a comprehensive approach to helping students get off to an excellent start. Students continuing from Covenant’s Junior School have the benefit of familiarity and preparation throughout Year 6. In Year 7, all our students receive a program delivered by pastoral care staff to equip students for school life and learning. This includes a specific camp for Year 7 students.

In Years 8-10, learning extends beyond the classroom with an extensive multi-age elective camping program catering for students with different strengths, abilities and interests.

Opportunities including sport, Duke of Edinburgh Award, enrichment camps for Art, Mathematics, Cartooning, Writing and Drama plus the annual trips serving the Yarrabah Aboriginal community encourage students to expand their life experiences.

Christian Perspective and State Curriculum

Designing a Christ-centred and biblically-grounded education requires deliberate effort and focus. The required NSW state curriculum is taught from a biblical perspective considering a Christian worldview in each subject. Students are encouraged to think critically, ask questions and consider the outworking of the Christian faith in all areas of life. 

The purpose of biblical studies goes beyond knowing what the Bible says, it is about knowing God through reading and understanding His word. All classes at Covenant are taught from a Christian perspective – the perspective of ‘those who know God’. The ‘Knowing God’ subject, from Kindergarten to Year 12, helps students to deepen their understanding of God’s word and Christian faith (Rom 10:17). In this way, ‘Knowing God’ is like English, both a name for a course and a foundational element in other courses.

Pastoral Care

Covenant is known as a nurturing place providing stability and security as students move confidently towards independence. Pastoral care is the responsibility of all staff. Daily Pastoral Care devotions mix students from Years 7-12 in vertical rolls based on house groups. 

A team of six Pastoral Care Coordinators take responsibility for different year groups. Our Counsellors and Careers Advisor are available to students working in conjunction with parents.

“It is very encouraging and helpful to go to a Christian Secondary School at a time in life when values become a key part of our life.”

Grading of Classes 

Students of differing abilities and interests mix in classes. From Year 7 onwards, English and Maths classes are based on student ability. Practical classes are smaller allowing for more student and teacher interaction.
