Our history began with a vision from God to our founding forefather Ps Gordon Gibbs calling parents to bring their children up ‘in the discipline and instruction of the Lord’ Ephesians 6:4b (RSV). As seeds of promise and provision took root, God watered and they grew into individuals who today bear much good fruit.
Penrith Christian School – with Christ central to all that we are and do – was birthed in faith in 1981 as Heritage Christian School from the ministry of Penrith Christian Life Centre, known today as ImagineNations Church.
In 1985 the school became known as Penrith Christian Community School with twenty two students, one teacher and one teaching Principal. In 1989 the school moved into Secondary education with the establishment of Year 7 and in 1995 graduated its first Year 12 in the Higher School Certificate.
We introduced a double-stream in 1997 and in 2006 became known as Penrith Christian School. Since our humble beginnings we have grown to a Preschool to Year 12 School with an enviable reputation of achieving excellence in a wide range of curriculum areas including: academia, performing arts, trades and sport.
