Our Story

Who we are

We passionately believe in the need for independent, accessible education that develops the whole child – intellectually, socially, physically, culturally and spiritually; environments that maintain exceptional culturally relevant educational standards, embedded with the truth of the Christian Gospel.

We believe in delivering best-practice, leading education that embraces people as individuals and equips them to serve the communities and world in which they live. Person-by-person, generation-by-generation – by the grace that God supplies – we positively impact the world through life-changing education.


Providing an enriching and tailored educational experience

St Philip's Christian College Gilibaa has adopted an evidence informed model of schooling that is designed specifically to cater for the needs and interests of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students.

We are Leaders in Whole of Life Education – empowering young people with agency and opportunity to explore their whole potential while firmly grounded in their value and God’s love, for the whole of life.

Beyond an excellent education, our approach fosters self-awareness and well-being, spiritual formation, authentic relationships and personal excellence within a values-based, faith-filled community.

Each student has an individual education plan that allows them to set goals with their teacher, parents and/or caregivers while following the NSW curriculum relevant to their stage of learning.
