About Nunawading Christian College[edit]

Established in 1964, Nunawading Christian College (NCC) consists of two schools - one primary and one secondary, which work together to provide quality Christian education. It is a College established by the Seventh-day Adventist Church. All Seventh-day Adventist Schools in the State of Victoria form a single system with each school tied constitutionally to Seventh-day Adventist Schools (Victoria) Inc. This central organisation controls the employment of teaching staff and, through a committee, determines the distribution of financial resources between schools.

The College is open to young people who are willing to accept its philosophy and standards of conduct.

Nunawading Christian College is controlled by a School Council which is responsible for financial management, pupil enrolment, and the maintenance of the school facilities. Responsibility for the day-to-day operation of the school rests with the Principal and staff.

Spiritual aspects[edit]

All students take religion classes each year that they are enrolled. These classes cover topics in biblical history and Christian and denominational doctrines. Instructors in other disciplines also begin each class period with prayer or a short devotional thought, many which encourage student input. Weekly, the entire student body gathers together for an hour-long chapel service. Outside the classrooms there is year-round spiritually oriented programming that relies on student involvement.


The school offer the following sports:

  • Soccer (boys & girls)
