Welcome to our website....
Christ the King School is a community where individuals are encouraged to express themselves; where the teachings of Jesus Christ are embraced with enthusiasm and used as guidelines for living together in family and wider society; where love and zest for learning are fostered, where all members feel welcome, respected and safe.
Christ the King School is part of a dynamic group of schools in one of the fastest growing areas of Australia. As part of St Eugene’s Parish, Burpengary, we have direct access to St Eugene College, a newly opened Catholic college only 10 minutes away.
Our school has new classrooms, library, admin block and hall and is equipped with the latest resources and technology. By far, our greatest asset is the outstanding staff who, together with parents, create a close family atmosphere in a small school setting. Our learning support programme and network of specialist teachers and school officers ensure that each child’s individual needs are catered for. Our community is made up of people from varied social and religious backgrounds. We provide an inclusive Catholic learning programme for everyone.
Latest News & Events
This week we also celebrate Science Week however due to all of the excitement of Bookweek we will kick off celebrations for Science week on Monday with the Street Science Show from QUT. Science is always a high priority in our classroom learning and I am always amazed at the wonderful inquiry learning going on when I talk to students. On the Facebook page this week and next we will have some fun (and safe) experiments you can try at home.
This Sunday, both of our CtK Optiminds teams will be performing at Ferny Grove SHS. These students (and parents) have given up a lot of time, inside and outside of school time and I am so proud of them, in particular in the way they are overcoming all the obstacles that are part of a challenge of this nature. Please wish them all the best if you see them around the school in our quest for the ‘Great Glass Head’
