A History of Brindabella Christian College, Canberra

For over thirty years Brindabella Christian College, formerly O’Connor Christian School, has provided a holistic approach to education based on Christian values and beliefs.

Beginning with 2 teachers and 29 students in 1980, we now cover two campuses in Charnwood and Lyneham with930 children and young people currently enrolled. Our students are taught to pursue a life of wisdom, integrity, service and excellence in and through Christian Education.

Preparing young people in a rapidly evolving world which can be volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous, demands that the significant adults in a young person’s life lead and learn alongside them with purpose, compassion and humility – that they know our young people well, that they love them well and teach them well.

We welcome anyone wishing to learn more about the College and encourage you to make an appointment to meet with us.
