At Donvale Christian College we are very aware that we are preparing students for an exciting, yet challenging future enabling them to fulfil their calling of being ambassadors for God. In partnership with parents, we are preparing them to be people who, with spiritual discernment, intellectual honesty, and a passion for the gospel of Christ, will humbly attempt to interpret and apply Biblical themes and values to their own cultural setting and to the work to which God calls them.
At Donvale Christian College, we aim to provide an education for the whole child. This naturally includes the vital skills and experiences gained through sport, music and outdoor education. Our committed Christian staff also work tirelessly to help shape the values of our students during their formative years. Students are not only taught how their Christian values affect their approach to life in areas like environmental stewardship, social justice and leadership, but they’re given the opportunity to embrace their faith in their own way and in their own timing. We believe this is one of elements which makes The Donvale Difference.
Campus tours are a great way to find out more about our school, walk around the Primary or Secondary classrooms, and ask questions.
Our weekly newsletter articles are updated weekly (on Thursdays) on our website; while the News and Events are updated daily. We hope you enjoy reading about the news and reviews from around the College.

This year Donvale Christian College celebrates its 40th birthday. The vision started with the desire to provide a Christ-centred education for children... and what a journey it has been!
As we celebrate this milestone the College is collating a photobook of memories. Whilst it is impossible to capture all these precious memories, the book certainly does give great insight into the journey of our College thus far.
We would like to share those moments with all who have been associated with our community. We are extending an opportunity for past students, past staff and past parents to purchase a copy of the photobook...
