Principal’s Welcome


Welcome to the Website of Renew School.

For our latest newsletter and announcements, visit here.

Renew School developed from vision planted in 1977 coupled with the passion of a group of parents to start in 1993. It became an Integrated Special Character Area School in 1996. Since its beginnings it has grown significantly and has influenced the wider community.

The school exists to assist parents in their children’s education by offering specialist teaching in a Christian environment. Training in Christian values occurs not only in Biblical Studies classes, but across all curriculum areas.  We place high priority on the wellbeing and success of each individual student and developing courses to best fit their needs; and to maintaining good parent-school relationships.

Pupils come from a variety of Christian backgrounds and environments, but these families are committed to the Special Character of the school.

The school has the capacity for 240 students and 35 teachers, aides and support staff.

Enrolling children in Renew School gives parents an opportunity to choose a different and distinctive education environment. Christian Education is based on Biblical principles where respect, honesty and other traditional values are encouraged and expected. The emphasis on developing character in our students results in academic excellence being evident throughout the school.

I hope you enjoy exploring the site and find the information useful. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
