In pursuing our Purpose, Christian Schools Tasmania values:

  • Servant leadership - We value effective Christian leaders who serve their communities through setting clear directions, living out the vision, and enabling and equipping their team members.
  • Community - As Christian caring communities, we value honesty, integrity, sharing, justice, forgiveness and compassion in all our dealings with each other.
  • Achievement - We seek to provide an educational environment in which students and staff are nurtured toward reaching their God-given potential and achieve well in areas of aptitude.
  • Stewardship - All that God has given us in people, buildings, equipment and financial assets belong to Him and we are committed to stewarding these resources well for the sake of His kingdom.
  • Uniqueness - We value and respond to the unique personality, giftedness, experience and culture of each individual as an image bearer of God.
  • Creativity - We celebrate originality and innovation which reflects the person of our Creator.
