Glenvale Christian School

We are an inter-denominational, co-educational day school, located in beautiful Toowoomba, which caters for students from Kindergarten to Year 6. We are a friendly and welcoming school that seeks to provide a Christ-centred education for our students which is grounded in biblical values and the promotion of a positive and engaging learning environment for all students.

Our Mission Statement

The mission of Glenvale Christian School is, "with humble reliance upon the grace of our sovereign God, in order to assist Christian parents to fulfill their educational responsibility, and complementing the work of the Christian Church, to nurture our students in the fear and admonition of the Lord and to develop towards full potential the gifts, skills, talents and creativity which the Lord has given to each student."

The goal of this nurture is so that our students may: 

  • Individually confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour 
  • Determine to follow and obey Him in all areas of life throughout all their lives 
  • Mature emotionally, morally and socially 
  • Grow in knowledge and self-discipline 
  • Be prepared for further learning and for their life's calling 
  • Develop in their responsibility for, and enjoyment of, life in God's Kingdom
Why Christian Schooling?

Today more than ever, our children need an education which is Christ-centred, allowing the child to grow academically and spiritually in an environment of care. Christian education is about engaging with the world and preparing students for lives that reflect, serve and honour God. It is about acknowledging God in every subject area and in every area of life.

Partnering with parents in a different way

The following bible verses describe the important responsibility parents have in the development and learning of their children: 

Ephesians 6:4 states, "Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord." 

Deuteronomy 6:6-7 states, "And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise."

At Glenvale Christian School, we believe that parents should make careful and conscious decisions about:

  • What their children learn
  • Who they are learning from
  • The values they are being taught in the school curriculum. An education at Glenvale Christian School is guided by our belief in God, His Word the Bible and the guidance the Bible gives us in how we should live and treat one another. 
quote from CEN website

“Many people have heard of Christian schools but what does it mean to have Christian education and a Christian school? Is the education any different? Whether it’s learning how to run a 400m race, learning how to spell “rendezvous”, or learning to factorise a polynomial, all knowing has its ultimate meaning and purpose when framed by God’s big picture story anchored in Jesus.

 All forms of education will have a particular perspective on life. It may not always be obvious or overtly stated, but it will shape how things are understood and spoken about, how things are done, and what is chosen to be taught. This might be in the form of assumptions about the nature and origins of the world, or it might be evident through suggestions about the purpose of life and indeed what it means to be fulfilled as a human. No form of education is neutral as it will always be providing a particular lens through which the student sees the world and their place in it.” — Christian Education National Website
