The Donvale Difference (Guitar)
At Donvale Christian College, we want to help students be inspired by creation and the creative gifts bestowed by our God. One of the many ways we do this is through Creative Arts Week, a week when students exercise their creative gifts in a manner which points to their Creator. In this week, regular classes are replaced by opportunities to experience the joys of imagination, refinement and performance in a wide range of the arts. From drama to dance, music to multimedia, set construction to the culinary arts; students work together, regardless of age and ability to create a communal celebration of creativity: another distinctive example of The Donvale Difference.
40 years of Christian Education
Learning that goes beyond knowledge (Rock)
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.
Trust from day one (Coffee)
At Donvale Christian College, the first day of school not only represents a student's entry into our vibrant learning community, but it also heralds the beginning of our parents' journey into Donvale's network of teachers, parents and churches. One of the hallmarks of our school is the sense of trust shared within our close-knit community - a sense that
we’re headed towards a common goal. This is one of our school's highest values, something that we consciously invest in, and something you'll notice as soon as you walk in the door - we’re on the same page. This sense of community trust is another unique aspect of The Donvale Difference.
Learning that integrates life and technology (Cake)
At Donvale Christian College, we believe that technology is best used when it enhances learning and when it enhances the quality of human interaction. As a school, this means selecting the most appropriate devices for educational outcomes and having world-class IT support and infrastructure. For the students, teachers and parents, this provides a medium for deeper, more genuine communication and a greater depth of learning. This attitude towards technology is part of The Donvale Difference.
