Our World View
Northholm has always espoused the belief that the Christian faith is central to an understanding of human existence. We seek to bring our students to an understanding of that faith, and the personal integrity it implies, through what we do in our teaching and learning, in our discipline and pastoral care, in our co-curricular program and in our dealings with the wider community.
We recognise that in an increasingly complex world young people need support in making sense of the world they will inherit. Now more than ever they need guidance in finding the personal interests and passions that will give their lives purpose. At Northholm this guidance is provided through a variety of programs that foster the intellectual, spiritual, physical, emotional, social and aesthetic development of all students.
This more holistic approach to educating our students builds their self-knowledge and personal strengths in ways that allow them to embrace life with a sense of optimism. We believe that optimism together with resilience is fundamental to the wellbeing of our young people, both now and in the future.
