As you explore the Chairo website, I trust you will begin to discover a community that so many families have come to love and value over the years as they have partnered with us to raise their children to live faith-filled and fruitful lives.

As a long-term staff member and parent of the school, I have a great affection for this community and a deep appreciation for how young lives are shaped at Chairo.

We are committed to valuing each unique student and nurturing their capability, character and commitment. Our deep hope is that, when they leave our school, they will have been equipped with a strong sense of identity and purpose, ready to have a positive impact in their careers and communities.

Whether they are with us from kindergarten or Prep, or join us somewhere along the way, it is so exciting and rewarding to be part of the journey for each student!

In New Testament Greek, the word chairo means to rejoice! The families who pioneered our school wanted this place to be one where all community members were full of delight and joy as they learn and discover their God-given potential. More than forty years later, we still feel the same way.

It’s not hard to see the attractive campuses, the enriching programs, the highly capable staff members and strong educational outcomes, yet the essence of Chairo is even more wonderful.

Chairo is a community that is dedicated to our mission: to provide excellence in Christ-centred education, in partnership with families, within a caring Christian community.

We invite you to come and get to know us, and to experience how authentically this mission is lived out in our school.
