    Chess Tournament Success

    On Thursday 23rd August, our college had 38 students participate in the third and final Regional Chess Tournament for Far North Qld. It was the highest participation for any FNQ tournament in history with 373 students in primary and secondary involved.

If everyone wasn’t already nervous, they certainly are … Read the rest

    Kindy receives inclusion recognition

    On Friday the 15th of June, Freshwater Christian Kindergarten was awarded our “Inclusion Ready” sticker to display at our service (we are one of the first Cairns services to be awarded this honour).

    This sticker is a new way for the government to bring attention to services that have worked in partnership with the Inclusion Support Service to ensure our educators and teachers have embedded inclusive practices in our service.  This has been a process of developing a living document, (a Strategic Inclusion Plan or SIP) that recognises … Read the rest

    A warm welcome to 2018

    Dear Parents/Guardians,
    Here’s wishing you and your precious family a very happy and prosperous New Year.

    I am very excited to be joining the Freshwater Christian College Community as the new Principal, and look forward to building on the excellent work that Mr Hector Costello has led in establishing the College as a provider of high quality Christian education.

    In reflecting on the successes of 2017, we celebrate with our Year 12 students who managed to achieve the best overall results in the College’s history. We achieved 2 OP 1’s for the first time and had over half our Year 12 students achieve an OP of 10 or below. We also achieved many awards at local, State and National level.
