From the Principal’s Desk
Jireh Christian School opened its doors for business as a new state integrated, full primary on February 7, 2018 with 206 enthusiastic and excited students.
This momentous occasion has been the culmination of much prayer and diligent preparation by the people of two Christian communities of learning who have come together as one for the purpose of nurturing young people to know, serve and Glorify God.
We look forward to building a Christ-centred community where students are equipped to think critically and be innovative change-agents for the Kingdom of God. All students are confident in their cultural and spiritual identity. Parent partnership and building high levels of professional trust will be intentionally cultivated as integral to who we are as an honouring community.
