What do you love about EC?
We love the fact that our children get to hear about God everyday at school. The bible instructs us in Deuteronomy 6:7 to teach the word of God to our children when we sit at home and when we walk along the road, when we lie down and when we get up. Since they spend about seven hours at school each day, we are grateful that they do not miss out on hearing God’s word during this period. Our faith and love for God as a community also unifies us and this helps to bridge cultural differences. We have been blessed with genuine friends.
Why did you choose Eastern Christian School for your children?
- We believe in partnering with the Church and School to raise godly children and EC offered that partnership
- Impressive physical structure with boldly written bible verses
- More diverse environment than the public school setting we were in at the time
- Supportive staff
- Warm environment where authentic family relationships can be built
In what ways have you seen your children grow in their faith as a result of their experience at Eastern Christian School?
Our children love music and enjoy learning new Christian songs at school. They also love learning new bible verses. The opportunity to come together for chapel every week has taught them that worshipping God is continuous and not a Sunday affair. They are also learning to view things from a Godly perspective as this is emphasized in the subjects taught.
What would you tell another parent to encourage them to consider enrolling their child at Eastern Christian School?
We were raised in an environment where belief in God was taught in schools. Unfortunately, this is not the case in our culture now. For everyone who values a Christ centered education for their children, EC is a good place for you. Here you get to partner with the school in raising a generation of children who are bold in declaring their faith and living godly lives.
