The staff of Richards Bay Christian School, are committed to teach the students from a biblical perspective, using the CAPS curriculum, to prepare them for an IEB high school career. We believe that offering an education founded on a biblical world view will foster personal spiritual development and enable us to instill the practice of excellence in academics, Christian character and servanthood. We desire to partner with parents to present God’s Truth and His Word as the source of authority on which to build a life with purpose and meaning. We encourage our students to develop relationships built on trust and respect and to value everyone as a unique creation of God.
As a committed group of professional teachers, we seek to build a firm academic and spiritual foundation for your children. One which can be strengthened through their primary and high school years. We use the CAPS curriculum as a guideline and our assessments are thorough in order to start preparing the students for an IEB matric. Through our instruction, biblical worldview is nurtured in all our students. We endeavour to instil a culture of honour in the lives of those we teach. “Be devoted to tenderly loving your fellow believers as members of one family. Try to outdo yourselves in respect and honour of one another.” Romans 12:10 TPT
