A Biblical Framework for Curriculum Design

At žž, our deepest hope and desire as Christian educators is to point our students to Jesus. Whether we are engaging with the latest curriculum reforms, designing dynamic learning tasks, or developing and nurturing our students, this our ultimate purpose. As our teachers sit and wrestle with new syllabuses, we always ask ourselves, “How can I teach this concept from a Christian perspective?” or “What biblical threads, or common themes, can be woven throughout this unit to help direct our…

Getting the mission clear

At žž, our Mission statement says that we aim to be Christ-centred, biblically grounded, culturally engaging and academically rigorous. But what do these words actually mean? Our Junior School was visited by Independent MP, Dr Sophie Scamps, who was keen to learn about what our students considered important about their school. As Dr Scamps moved throughout the Junior School, she heard our students stating their love for Jesus and his word over and over again. A passionate young man in…

Strengths

Our Mental Fitness Program is designed to have a positive focus on building resilience that is centred on God as our foundation with our minds set on things above (Colossians 3:2). God calls us to be joyful in all circumstances (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18). This is something that requires a trust in God as he actively works in us to love and serve him.

Knowing God at žž

Our mission at žž Christian School is to partner with parents and educate our students in order to equip them to live for God’s glory. We do this by firstly helping our students to know and trust God and his profound love for them. Only then can they be equipped to celebrate his glory and rejoice in the life he has given them. We hope that all our students, indeed all people, would come to know, trust and love Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. We want our students to know God’s…

Mental Fitness - Mindfulness and Prayerfulness

Today, I woke up at 4:30am. My mind thought about work… I was up. I was trying to talk to my son about his day, I looked at my phone and got distracted…. I had to ask him to repeat what he said. I was busy working away at my desk when I was sent an unpleasant email… I couldn’t focus. I had to make an important decision around how to care for someone… I got stressed. These are real examples of my life and some of them might feel familiar for you too. God calls us to “Be still, and know that I am…

Japan Service Tour

The 2023 Japan Service Tour was an incredible opportunity for our students to grow in Christian discipleship, mission-mindedness, as well as Japanese language acquisition. Tour organiser and Japanese teacher, Mrs Louise George, believes there is no better way to love our neighbour as Jesus commanded than to go to their country, not just as a tourist, but as someone who is invited into their home and school.

Fostering strong social connections

In 2013, the Wall Street Journal wrote an article called “It Takes Planning, Caution to Avoid Being ‘It’”. It spoke about a group of men who have played the game of tag for 23 years. Why would they do this? Because they saw the joy and benefits in still connecting with one another, even after all these years. At žž, we are focusing as a whole school on social connections. This is the relationships and friendships you have with the people around you and includes anyone who plays an…
