Our Heart


The heart and central purpose of the Lake Taupo Christian School comes from Taupo people. Our teachers, board members, parents and friends share a dynamic Christian faith found in the person of Jesus Christ. As a Christian school we foster strong caring relationships - students with students, students with teachers and teachers with parents. We believe in and attempt to practice, real community where people care for one another.

At the Lake Taupo Christian School acquisition of academic and personal skills are important. Our students perform at top levels within a nationally recognised curriculum.

However education at a Christian school goes well beyond academic performance and skills development. Our endeavour is to teach pupils how to live. We are concerned with the development of character in our students and encourage a sense of responsibility and self-discipline. Each pupil is taught basic truths of the Christian faith as they are revealed in scripture and encouraged to be loyal to their own church. It is our hope that each pupil comes into a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus.

Life for many young people these days is something of a battleground. During the impressionable years, young people need positive role models and a secure schooling environment. This is what we seek to provide at Lake Taupo Christian School.

Our school offers a total educational experience from new entrants to Year 13. Not only does it address academic, social and spiritual needs of children but is structured to offer the best educational programme for each stage of development.

We have two areas within the school, with experienced senior staff responsible for each level. Our junior school provides for pupils from new entrants to Year 8; and senior school pupils from Year 9 to 13. This continuity of schooling has clear benefits to our pupils.
