Parents and Friends


Rijken, Marcel

One of the most significant features of being a member of the Temple Christian College family is the sense of warm welcome and instant belonging that is to be found in this community. Our Parents & Friends are an integral support group to the work of the School as we educate our students, your children, to be a people of influence in our Nation.

We invite all our Temple Community to join with us, to encourage each other in grace and in truth, to fulfil the plans and purposes for the Glory of God. We do this simply by engaging in various College events throughout the year. We would love the opportunity to share your family’s journey and to learn from one another. Our prayers are for God’s favour to multiply over our whole Temple family, and His Love to be the example for others to follow.

The Committee
Parents and Friends


 MON1636The Parents & Friends has been actively involved in many aspects of school life since the School’s inception in 1983. In the early days much of the early building and reshaping of the school grounds was done by parents, friends, staff and students.

In recent times fundraising initiatives have ranged from the installation of the heaters in the ‘Plaza’ and the ‘Shed’ and refurbishing the Indoor Sports area. The very practical assistance of the Parents & Friends goes into projects that directly benefit the students of today and well into the future.



We would love to hear from our community of parents and friends with any ideas or questions you may have regarding the life of the school. We also encourage current parents to provide feedback on their experience of the school and to let us know of any matters they feel may need to be discussed at upcoming meetings.

We look forward to hearing from you.
