    Principal’s Welcome

    As Principal of Freshwater Christian College, it is my privilege to welcome each 
new child and their family to our inspirational learning community. Along with a team of dedicated Christian teachers, we are committed to providing support and encouragement to each of our
 students as they discover, explore and develop their God given gifts and talents.

    Mr Doug Holtam, Principal

    Welcome to Freshwater

    We like to partner with you, our parents, to provide an education that equips your child spiritually, socially and academically. We welcome parental involvement in the classroom, sporting and cultural events as we know the positive impact this involvement has on a child’s learning. Freshwater’s Christian values, which are at the core of our educational ethos, build a foundation for a bright future for every child and add to family life at home.

    You will find our environment is safe and compassionate while also challenging students to learn and achieve. Our commitment to you is to help your child develop and grow into a healthy young person with a quality of Christian character and leadership which will see them become responsible adults in the global community of the future.

    Our school is a reflection of the quality of the students
 who graduate every year with a sense of purpose and a whole College community cheering them on. At Freshwater Christian College, your child will experience caring peers and staff to guide them to achieve their best and an academic program that allows them to pursue their dreams.

    I look forward to welcoming you soon into the Freshwater community.
