The Burdekin Christian College commenced in 1982. It is situated at the corner of Melbourne and Chippendale Streets. Because of the availability of underground water its grounds are always green.
The College has both a school and an early learning child care centre.
The school has a population of over 108. It has five classes Prep, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3/4, Year 5 and Year 6/7. Besides employing teachers it employs a learning support teacher, a teacher librarian and a number of teaching assistants.
The Early Learning Childcare Centre is licensed for 31 students. The licence enables it to enrol 10 toddlers (15 months-3years) and 21 kindy/pre-prep (3 years to school age). It operates 50 weeks a year from 7.00am to 6.00pm. It also has before school and after school facilities.
At the Burdekin Christian College we recognise that learning involves students, parents and teachers and we aim to provide the support needed to families so that this takes place. We also work with families to support them in reinforcing Biblical values, morals, discipline and standards of conduct.
We realise that through education children are being prepared to be responsible and positive contributors to society and we also ensure that this is achieved by providing individual attention and personal care.
We recognise that we can assist each child to prepare them to contribute to their family and their community and we endeavour to do this through academic success and spiritual, social, mental and physical blessing.
