The purpose and sole object of this School is to provide a Christian philosophy of education for primary and high school students. We believe that education cannot take place in a moral vacuum and our programme will consequently have a strong Christian foundation and ethos. We try to challenge each student intellectually, to stimulate their intellectual growth, and to develop in them a thirst and passion for the Word of God.
Our teaching is fundamentally Protestant in nature, based on the Bible and in accordance to the teachings of the Reformist church fathers and their writings.
The School subscribes to the following basis of faith to which all members, parents of learners, employees and office bearers must subscribe without reservation. Children may only be accepted into the school if the parents/guardians are able in good conscience to sign the Statement of Faith and declare their unconditional agreement with the Statement of Faith of this Constitution.
We strive to create an environment in which the school partners with parents and church to provide excellence in education in order to prepare children for life. We believe in:
We seek inclusion rather than separation and therefore expect learners not to categorise, label or physically identify themselves with any cultural affiliation, ethnic grouping or traditional belief system through the wearing of cultural, ancestral, political, traditional or superstitious jewellery, clothing, symbols or markings. Such items are also not part of the CCS school uniform standards and regulations.
We adhere to the Protestant orientation of Sunday as the day set aside for corporate or private worship and we strive not to arrange sports events, meetings, training etc. on Sundays.
All other days of the week may be used, without reservation, for sports events, meetings, training, cultural events, compulsory parent-teacher interactions etc.
