Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to The Hills Christian Community School (HCCS).

Our  unique School is focused on nurturing young people to become outstanding members of their community. We provide a high quality education program firmly based on our Christian values.

HCCS is comprised of an Early Learning Centre, a Reception to Year 6 Primary School, and a unique Year 7 Centre all in the village of Verdun, two minutes from Hahndorf, and a Secondary Campus at Oakbank, 4.7 kilometres away, for Year 8 to Year 12 students.

Our Rivermont Year 7 Centre, ‘in the woods’, is apart of our Primary Campus. Students believe this is one of the best years of their lives!  As well as the Year 7 students, the property is used by all ELC and Primary students for Nature Play and Environmental Studies.

HCCS has inspired and taught children for over 36 years and is served by a delightful team of Christian Educators who value children and seek to nurture young minds. The engaging learning climate promotes curiosity, discovery, independence and smiles, with respectful relationships between adults and children immediately evident. Over 540 students from the Early Learning Centre (ELC) to Year 12 attend this co-educational school.

In January 2013, HCCS commenced a Secondary School at Oakbank with a Year 8 class. Enrolling a new Year 8 class each year, HCCS Secondary has grown to 90 students in 2018 and now includes a Year 12 class, making HCCS the only Early Learning Centre to Year 12 co-educational, non-denomination Christian School in the Adelaide Hills.

We are very excited to announce that in May 2018, negotiations have begun to relocate the entire Secondary School back to Verdun to create a unified ELC to Year 12 Campus. The desire of the Board would be for the relocation to be complete sometime in 2020 with the best case scenario being for the start of the 2020 school year.

I invite you to contact Anita McDonald, our Enrolment Officer, if you would like to be sent a Prospectus or make a time to visit the School:

I would be pleased to welcome you personally if you are able to visit.

Kind regards,

Tony Fielke (Principal)
