About - Vision Mission & Values


Our vision is to provide the highest quality education that prepares student for a life of service to God.

This is in line with that of Christian Schools Tasmania (the association that oversees our school). 



Calvin Christian School partners with parents to grow every student’s unique identity, character and talents, and equip them to fulfil their God-given purpose in an increasingly complex and changing world.




At Calvin these values guide our daily lives:

  • Love – First and foremost we are called to love others (John 13:34;1 John 4:9; Mark 12:31) and accept God’s love for ourselves. (John 3:16; 1 John 3:1; Romans 8:31) Love is to look for good. We treat others with dignity because they too are made in Christ’s image (Gen 1:27). Because we love we forgive first (Mark 11:25; Ephesians 4:32; Romans 3:23; 1 John 1:9) and are moved to...
  • Compassion – Even before we know someone we are moved by their circumstances and desire to extend resources and time to assist them (Luke 15:20; Matthew 25:35). We are prepared to act with...
  • Courage – Someone has to act, and we accept that it will be us. We are prepared to step first, stand alone, and go where others are not. (2 Timothy 2:16; 2 Corinthians 5:8; John 15:13) We encourage at every opportunity (Ephesians 4:29; 1 Thessalonians 5:11; Hebrews 3:13). We are...
  • Generous – We live a generosity of spirit wherever possible. We choose to bless with a little extra, go a little further, or stay a little longer. (1 John 3:17; Romans 12:8).
  • Effort – We understand that work is worship, and that our effort is what makes the difference. (Colossians 3:23) Persistence is a virtue (Galatians 6:9; Philippians 3:14; Proverbs 12:27).
  • Character – The mental, emotional and moral qualities that are distinctive to a person, and which both temper and amplify the gifts of the individual. Developing an individual’s character an essential function of a purposeful education.


 In all we do, we aim to build people who are equipped and willing to cross the room to make a difference in the lives of others.
