Citipointe Christian College congratulates its student musicians who were awarded top prizes in the recently concluded Redlands Eisteddfod, a youth-oriented competition on various performance disciplines: music, speech and drama, dance, as well as aria and concerto.

“Congratulations to all students for your commitment and hard work,” College Headmaster Pastor Ron Woolley of the Christian school says. “A very special thank-you to the Directors of these groups who not only inspire the students to do their very best, but also work so hard with the students to achieve this.”

The college instrumental ensembles won first place in the following categories: Junior Strings (Primary), Primary Strings (Primary), Strung Out (Secondary strings), Primary Band (Primary), Wind Ensemble (Secondary), Jazz Jammers (Secondary), and Just Jazz (Secondary).

They also earned second place for No Strings Attached (Secondary strings), Concert Winds (Secondary) and Concert Band (Secondary). They participated with students from private schools, Brisbane community groups, fellow Christian schools, Brisbane youth bands, and other amateur competitors.

Pastor Woolley says the students’ outstanding performances are also motivated by the school environment that supports learners to explore their full potential intellectually, creatively and interpersonally. Their academic curriculum is complemented by vibrant athletic, cultural and arts programs, all based on a solid religious and values education methodology.

“Our school offers an enriching curriculum that fosters academic excellence,” says the headmaster. “Consequently, we make it a point to structure the lessons to promote progressive learning experiences across a range of intellectual, social, cultural, spiritual and physical pursuits.”

The school’s core commitment on strengthening students’ competency and personality, Pastor Woolley believes, is the reason why Citipointe Christian College shows an outstanding track record in national literacy and numeracy tests and international competitions.

The top Year 12 students of the Christian school, Australia rankings show, belong to the top 100 pupils in Queensland and top 500 in Australia. They have won recognitions in The Australian Student Prize, a government initiative designed to distinguish academic excellence and achievement in secondary education.

Parents interested in sending their children to this independent school Brisbane proudly offers can study senior results, student and faculty accomplishments, and parent and community activities at the regularly updated Citipointe Christian College website.

Pastor Woolley advises parents to compare the average performance of all the students at the College with other leading schools to aid them in choosing the best educational institution for their child.

Aside from the academic and learning structure, he also stresses the importance of the learning environment in the development of each student. The authority figures—directors, teachers, counsellors and school staff—should also exemplify the positive core values upheld by the school.

In Citipointe Christian College, the concept of “Christian leadership” is the framework for promoting a progressive environment and positive, community-oriented values. “Our approach focuses on teaching students to connect with the wider local and global community,” Pastor Woolley says.

He believes that the robust partnership of solid Christian principles and a strong academic foundation explains how Citipointe Christian College accomplishes every school’s ultimate goal: the task of preparing students for life after school, and seeing them make a difference for a better community.

“The overall arc of the Citipointe Christian College classroom experience is geared towards guiding students about their responsibilities to their self, their families, their country, and the world,” Pastor Woolley concludes.
