Hamilton Christian School
Quality Christian Education

Welcome to Hamilton Christian School

Principal Cor Bezuidenhout Acting Principal Petra Verbeek

I invite you to a journey through the school God has so gracefully provided to us. Allow the website to introduce you to our school family. 

To be focussed and based firmly on Jesus and God’s word as a school community is foundational and very special to us. Our students know who they are in Christ. We guide our students, within close partnership with their parents, to strive for excellence and to discover and fulfill God’s calling for their lives.

Our staff love God and are excellent educators. They are role models of God’s depth of care for us to our children. They set high expectations and equip the students to excel beyond perceived boundaries. Students in our school are known and supported as individuals and each student’s own pathway to success is a priority to us.

We offer holistic Christian education in order to develop balanced and motivated young Christian people who will make a positive difference within their community wherever they may live and work.

We teach from a Biblical worldview and students are equipped with the ability to discern and identify the truth. Staff are intent on getting the students to not just accept information, but to analyse information through Biblical ‘glasses’ until they can shape their own beliefs and faith under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

We are structured in our approach, we believe that respect for others, integrity and taking responsibility for your own actions are important life skills that we emphasise from a Biblical perspective.

Through overseas mission trips, service work, camps, sport, debating, music, and other extra-curricular activities, our students are given the opportunity to not only become well-rounded individuals with a wide variety of skills, but who think beyond themselves to the needs of others they encounter through these activities.

Should you like to hear more about our school, please contact us. We would love to meet you and to partner with you in the all-important journey that is your child’s education.

May God bless you and your family

In Christ,
Petra Verbeek
Acting Principal
