Canberra Private SchoolsÂ introduces John Calvin School in South Launceston, for all your education and learning needs.
The John Calvin School is a school run by the Free Reformed School Association (Tas) Inc. It was set up to enable parents in the Free Reformed Church to carry out the promise they made at the baptism of their children "to instruct and have them instructed in the doctrine of salvation to the utmost of their power". Since all of creation is under the dominion of Christ, it follows that all aspects of education are likewise to be subject to His sovereign authority. Therefore, the John Calvin School is not just another private school with high standards of education and behaviour, nor is its curriculum identical to that of the state schools except for the addition of Biblical and Church History, a few prayers and some Psalm-singing. On the contrary, God's will, as it is revealed in the Bible and confessed in the doctrinal standards of the Free Reformed Church, permeates the whole curriculum.
The school’s aim is to assist the parents in the upbringing their children, by equipping the children with skills and knowledge for a God-honouring life of service in the church community and the community at large. We are encouraged and guided by bible passages like Psalm 78 in which we as God’s people are reminded of our collective task to “….tell the next generation of the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord ……” so that they in their lives would honour God by keeping His commands.
Welcome to John Calvin School one of the popular educators in your South Launceston area. Our aim is help you in your learning journey.
We endeavour to celebrate each other's uniqueness by providing opportunity for all and to develop a culture that identifies that the journey towards excellence is often paved with trial and error, risk taking, learning from mistakes, flexibility and adaptability. We believe that encouraging students to take ownership of the learning is critical in achieving the best learning outcomes and that implicit in this concept is that students learn their own areas of strength and areas of development, through useful and explicit feedback.
