A PLACE WHERE THE CHILD IS THE HEART OF THE MATTER!

 
 

 

Waipa Christian School (WCS) is renowned for its "family" feel. When you visit WCS you will be welcomed by friendly staff and great students. Our Learning Spaces are warm and inviting. Their flexibility allows students to take charge of their learning styles, whether visual, auditory, read/write or kinesthetic. Our students are connected, creative and innovative, and are encouraged to be curious and explore through inquiry learning. Feel free to make an appointment to come and see what makes WCS unique.

Run4Bibles

Thank you to those who have already started collecting sponsorship for Run4Bibles, this money goes towards Bibles and biblical resources for students in South Africa. 

Run4Bibles has created a link for the students to create personal profiles, and for sponsors to directly donate. This also makes it easier for the school to process. There is also a fundraising target so the students can see how much has been donated to reach this goal.
