The College is Prep to Year 12, and has over 1,200 students enrolled. The College has experienced rapid growth over the past few years and will continue to expand to 1,400 students. A key priority of our College is to ensure education prepares students for the challenges of today’s world i.e., developing the learning capacity of every child and shifting the emphasis from teaching to learning. Linked with this is our desire to engage students so that they are connected in relationships with staff and each other and are encouraged to think deeply. We also recognise that education cannot be limited to the classroom and must involve the wider community. Cessnock is an area rich in opportunities as well as challenges. Our College needs staff who know they are called by God to work in such a pioneering field and who are confident in being able to connect with students, staff, parents and the surrounding community.
