40 Year Anniversary

Celebrating 1982-2022

2022 marks the 40th anniversary of the first year of school for Green Point Christian College with the first class meeting on 17 February 1982. Seventeen primary students came to class with one teacher in the rooms above the Little Coasties’ preschool.
Today we have 1095 students from Kindergarten to Year 12 and occupy our own premises on about 17 acres of land which the school has purchased over the years.
Green Point Baptist Church had the vision and courage to start a private school and have been willing to see it grow and expand way beyond what the founders had originally envisioned or probably imagined. We give thanks to God for faithful and hardworking people who have contributed to our school and made it what it is today, and we continue to develop it out of respect for those pioneers.
During this 40th anniversary we can say with the Apostle Paul who wrote to the people of Corinth nearly 2000 years ago: Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift! It is only because of the gift of Jesus that we have had any reason to bring this school into being and to keep it going as we seek to use it to equip a new generation for life in all its fullness.
We will continue to give thanks throughout the year and look forward to some celebratory events in August around the anniversary of the official opening of the school.
