Started at PCS in kindergarten in 2005 and graduated year 12 in 2017. Teachers actually care about your education and value each students different learning styles. I left PCS with a lot of positive memories and life long friends.
Early Childhood Learning Staff made Preparatory School such a great beginning for my daughter who has battled cancer since the age of 14 months. Last year was her first year in remission where she got to learn how to walk and do things that children her age do. Going to Prep School is an amazing privilege for her that we are so thankful for. To witness her having fun with friends and sharing great stories of normal things is unbelievably wonderful. Thank you for making her feel welcome, safe and cared for.
PCS is a special place to go to school because of its welcoming and friendly atmosphere. The students and teachers are always having fun and friendly interactions, which everyone wants to be a part of. I have noticed that students make and are friends with people from many other grades. This connection is really great to witness.
We have two children that attend Penrith Christian School. They have both been fortunate to have kind, nurturing and supportive teachers, who have created an environment where our children have thrived. We are so blessed to be part of the PCS community.
The teachers at PCS are the most loving and caring people. The sheer time and effort they put into our education allows us to strive for excellence. Additionally, I love the environment of chapel and the sense of community it creates between our grades.
Penrith Christian School is so special because of the loving culture and community that the student and teachers bring everyday. Our chapel time is really inspiring, we feel a ongoing support from all out teachers and a genuine care for our education. Our teachers want to see us succeed and prepare us for life.
