Spirituality and well-being

One of the strengths of Hills Adventist College is the high level of pastoral care provided by our teachers, in the classroom and in co-curricular activities. At the College, we offer support mechanisms for all students that span from their immediate teacher, homeroom teacher, head of department, chaplain or counsellor.

A diverse community enriches us all and Hills seeks to promote tolerance and encourage understanding. This is part of the 'Pastoral Care Program'.

Pastoral care forms an essential part of the School’s focus on the individual, and the individual as part of his or her community. Staff focus on developing personal and academic skills to enable each child to face the world with confidence. Each school within the College is assisted by support staff such as the Director of Teaching and Learning, chaplains and a counsellor.

Parents tell us that one of the primary reasons they choose to send their children to Hills is the support and understanding their child receives.

We welcome students and families of all faiths and cultural backgrounds…

As a Seventh-day Adventist College, living Christian values is fundamental to the way in which community is built and how education is delivered to our students.

As a Christian school founded by the Seventh-Day Adventist Church, Christianity forms the core of our teaching and approach to the school community as a whole.  While the school functions within the framework of an Adventist worldview we welcome students and families of all faiths and cultural backgrounds.

Hills Adventist College values each individual as a unique and whole person, with distinctive intellectual, spiritual, cultural, personal, social and physical needs.

A diverse community enriches us all and Hills seeks to promote tolerance and encourage understanding of difference. Every attempt is made to be sensitive to the backgrounds and needs of individuals. Students are encouraged to be open-minded and to develop positive attitudes towards living and learning with faith.

The weekly chapel program provides a place for reflection on, and interaction with, personal and community issues in light of the basic tenets of the Christian faith. This enables the development of confidence so that our students can take their place in the wider community.
