Middle School

Welcome to PCS Middle School

Palmerston Christian School is a school where every student is able to thrive. The Middle School years are a unique period of student growth and development. The Middle School program is designed to expand students’ academic skills and promote personal development. The attitudes of responsible citizenship is embedded into the program through a variety of learning experiences. The school seeks to develop and encourage an understanding, application and a respect for God and for Christian values.

Adolescence is a time of rapid physical, social, emotional and cognitive change. At PCS we target teaching and learning to each student individually as they grow into their maturity. The focus is on developing personal values, student social-emotional wellbeing, and developing classroom activities and structures to ensure every student achieves their full potential. Our approach equips Middle School students with vital skills, knowledge and attitude for their senior school years and to prepare them for life in the wider community.

 

We believe that students flourish best when they have developed a positive mindset. We also believe that each student is important, can become self-confident, enhance their academic performance and has the potential to achieve their goals and dreams. The success of our Middle School is the result of a collaborative approach of students, parents, and the entire school community focused on the holistic development of the student.

At PCS we endeavour to have strong partnerships between parents, students and the school. We firmly believe that where these partnerships exist, a child’s education can reach its maximum potential and students can thrive not just in their education, but in the complex transition from adolescence to adulthood.

We highly value regular communication with parents and would encourage you to contact us, as we endeavour to do the same wherever possible.

Although Compass, email and phone contact are often the go-to, we would also encourage you to partner with our school by attending:

  • Parent information nights
  • Parent teacher conferences each semester
  • School camps as a volunteer
  • Special assemblies
  • School functions and celebrations

It is in partnering together that we shall strengthen this community and see your child excel to their maximum potential.
