What's New


2014 Musical - Cinderella

The school musical was a huge success. The school would like to thank all our wonderful students on their performances, the back stage crew, staff and parent helpers. The voices, music and sets all came together to produce a great show.

Special thanks to our producer Mr Peter Cooper and the co producer Ms Sharyn Stockton. They were well supported by a huge team that gave the theatre goers a truly remarkable night out. 
 

A DVD of the performance is now available for purchase at the school office.

School Rules and Student Code of conduct

We have recently mailed out to parents about our new discipline procedures.

 As a Christian school that aspires to raise leaders of godly character, we believe that behaving in a manner that is respectful of others, loving and that promotes a positive learning environment is an essential requirement for all our students. Our Student Code of Conduct and School Rules  will help ensure that we are clear and consistent in communicating and enforcing OCS behavioural expectaions. It will also allow future families to understand and appreciate the culture here at our school.

The Student Code of Conduct and School Rules can now be accessed on the website click here to be taken to the documents.

This form is a new option for parents and can be used in the case of your child being absent due to illness. This form is called Student Absence Notification Form and please click here for copy.

Our Vision and Mission

The Vision of Orange Christian School is:

“To raise up effective leaders of godly character who will blend academic achievement and biblical truth, to influence society for the glory of God.”

This vision statement links well with our mission statement. Our mission statement tells people what we do and creates a link to one of our founding values – partnering with parents. The mission statement is:

“In partnership with parents, Orange Christian School provides affordable education that brings honour and glory to God. OCS gives each child a Christ-centred education as a complete person created by God in His image:

• Academically –to see the world from God’s view

• Spiritually – to view themselves in relation to God

• Socially – to see others as God sees them.”

 

Serving the Orange community for more than 30 years, Orange Christian School is a strong and vibrant coeducational school, providing Christian education from Preparatory to HSC grades. Our vision statement clearly identifies our key purpose, which is: To raise up effective leaders of godly character who will blend academic achievement and biblical truth, to influence society for the glory of God.  

Christian education seeks to support the unique development of each child so they can glorify God and meaningfully serve each other. It is built on a strong partnership between parents and school, where open communication and parental inclusion are both valued and encouraged.

 The three key focus areas for Orange Christian School are:

1. Christian education for lifelong discipleship;

2. Strong academic focus; and

3. Emphasis on creative and performing arts.    

The school seeks to bring all areas of school life into alignment with Biblical principles, including administration, curriculum, governance and welfare. By developing a faithful approach to education, OCS strives to offer excellent opportunities for academic, physical, spiritual, communal and emotional growth for all students.

Our aim is help students to build their lives on firm foundations with a focus on: Heart - love of others and ways that can serve and support our school community and the wider community; Soul - an understanding of one's self under Jesus’ kingship;  Mind - engaging with, and pursuing academic excellence; and Strength - endeavouring with all one's physical abilities in every task undertaken. It is through this teaching, mentoring and encouragement that OCS prepares our students to embrace the joys and challenges of living life as a Christian disciple in the twenty-first century.
