Preparing for Life at Temple Christian College

We trust that you find this information of value and ask that you do not hesitate to reach out to us via the Reception office should you have any additional questions or concerns.


Orientation Day is a special event developed specifically for new students entering Temple Christian College at the start of the 2021 school year in Year levels 7 & 8. This year, Orientation Day was to be held on Wednesday 25 November however due to the sudden changes in COVID-19 related restrictions, this program has been cancelled.

Traditionally on this day, we would host a program for both students and parents simultaneously, however as we are now unable to have additional parents and students onsite due to COVID-19 restrictions, we will be providing information and useful resources via the tabs below.
