Principal's Message

Kia Ora!

Choosing a school for your child is clearly one of the most important decisions you will ever have to make.

At Christchurch Adventist School, we understand that you want what is best for your child. We also understand that children learn differently. For this reason we focus not only on what your child learns, but how they learn. With enviable student-to-teacher ratios, we are able to meet children’s individual needs to enhance their academic achievement. We also recognise that learning goes beyond classroom; that it extends to building confidence and resilience, taking responsibility, and engaging with others. These aspects of learning, plus more, are explored through our Christian Living, values and pastoral care programs.

Our supportive environment facilitates spiritual, academic and social growth in all members of the school community. By choosing Christchurch Adventist School for your child, you will be placing them in a safe and intimate learning environment that supports their learning, nurtures their talents and encourages their development into confident and capable citizens of their community.

As a Christian school, we focus on provide a caring learning community; a community that is committed to developing personal excellence through academics, at the same time, leading students into a personal relationship with Jesus. Our school provides nurture, promotes excellence and instils values.

Christchurch Adventist School is making a difference in the lives of children and their families – a difference that has far reaching effects. I am thankful for God’s presence in our school and His blessing upon it.

Christchurch Adventist School, affectionately known as “CAS” is conveniently located in the heart of Papanui on Grants Road (off Papanui Road), right next door to Footsteps Christian Community Preschool, and serves a wide range of families from all over the Christchurch region.

Students at CAS receive a high standard of education based on Biblical values and in a caring, family-like environment.

We invite you to find out more about our school, as we are currently taking new enrolments! My Staff and I would love to have a chat with you and answer any questions you may have.

I look forward to welcoming you and your child to our school community.

Kind regards
Bob Norrish
