I completed my final primary teaching placements at Nunawading Christian College this year. I was blown away by the warmth of the NCC community, and could sense the school's genuine dedication to creating a nurturing learning environment.

Throughout my placements I had the privilege of working alongside experienced educators who were not only passionate about teaching but also deeply invested in the well-being of their students. The staff's commitment to fostering both academic and spiritual growth was evident in every interaction.

Overall, my time at Nunawading Christian College left a profound impression on me. I thought their holistic approach to education was unlike any other faith-based school I have witnessed, and I am grateful for the incredible staff and students who made me feel so welcome.

NCC is one of the schools that I do relief teaching at. Over the five years of teaching at this school I can honestly say that I really enjoy it when I work at NCC. I know that it is going to be a good day! The students are the most polite and well behaved students of all the schools that I work at. There is a unique and beautiful spiritual vibe at the school which I have never experienced anywhere else to the same extent. The teachers care about their students' wellbeing, education, and spirituality. The teachers pray for the students everyday. The VCE results also speak for themselves. If I had kids I would send them here.
