From our College Principal, Ms. Sharon Sopher
It is my privilege to welcome you and your family to Belmont Christian College. Under God, our College exists to support you, as parents, in the education of your children.
There is a famous scripture from the book of Proverbs that reads:
Train up a child in the way they should go; and when they are old, they will not depart from it.
As you journey with us at BCC, know that our teachers are primarily here, by your side, to support and train your children into becoming active servants of the Lord, not better citizens. What a privilege it is to prepare our youth for God’s work.
As College Principal, I recognise that starting Kindergarten is a new adventure, not only for your child, but for Mum and Dad too. We are so thankful that you are here. Please know that our prayerful commitment is that your child will be loved and known by name. As a College, we are here for every single learner, and that includes your precious little one.
This first year will be filled with many wonderful memories and learning experiences that will form a strong foundation for the years ahead. We look forward to welcoming you into our College community and partnering alongside you for many years to come.
