A Christian worldview

Through our association with the Uniting Church, we honour our heritage and commit to building our community on the Christian values of tolerance, kindness, respect for ones self and others, personal honesty, integrity and self discipline

Our College is strengthened by people of different faiths and cultural backgrounds who share our core values and add to the richness of school life. Cornish College holds an Annual Church Service every year.

For more information, please see the Uniting Church in Australia’s Basis of Union.

Religious education

Cornish College teaches from the Christian worldview. We teach Religious Education from Early Learning Centre through to Year 7 and in Year 8 we teach Ethics.

From Prep to Year 4 the emphasis is on exploring Christian and Cornish College values through Bible stories and influential characters.

In Years 5 and 6 the emphasis is on worldview. We explore students’ own worldview as well as other religious worldviews. We compare and contrast these with the Christian worldview. We also include units on ‘Making A Difference’, encouraging our students to consider social justice issues and community-building issues.

In Year 7 we link in with the curriculum emphasis on ‘The Big Question’ and look at the Big Questions of Life. Students take a more in-depth look at selected religious worldviews, as well as re-visiting their own worldview. Students also focus in on the word ‘advocacy’ and are given opportunities to express this concept via a ‘Make a Difference’ project.

Fortnightly chapel services at Cornish College are designed to be fun, engaging, challenging, interactive, and reflective. Students and staff are encouraged to feel that they can be involved in the learning that takes place.

A typical chapel service will have prayer, a Bible story or passage, music, clips, discussions, links to College values, student leadership and ‘dodgy’ games.
