Heritage

Inauguration

Kingsway Christian College was founded in 1984 by four families who were seeking an education for their children grounded by strong Christian beliefs and values.

In 1983 a Constitution was drafted, and an Association of interested parents was established. A Steering Committee was formed to investigate the establishment of the new Christian school. In 1984 (on the site of a Baptist church at Craigie) a school for Years 1 to 8 was established with six teachers and 110 students.

The land

After purchasing eight acres of land 25 kilometres north of Perth, the foundations were laid on 23 November 1984 and the first buildings were constructed. A neighbouring property was purchased in 1986 which increased the site to seven hectares and provided ample land for expansion.

Original buildings

The first buildings consisted of three classroom blocks, a canteen, and undercover area and a transportable from the original Craigie site. Over the next two decades, a three-stage building programme was developed.
