What we offer

“At Marrara we seek to provide an education that is Christ centred, biblically grounded, academically rigorous and culturally engaging.  We are committed to loving the students entrusted to us.  That expresses itself by seeking what is in the best interest of those in our school community, especially the students in our care.  Our students are God’s “image bearers” which gives them inherent worth.  This is also true of our staff and parents.  As an educational institution we strive to stretch our students academically and to provide an environment that is safe and nurturing in which they can flourish.  As part of that, students are expected to be respectful of staff and of the learning of other students.” – Bill Rusin, Principal, Marrara Christian College
