Our Middle School

Marion Middle School Year 7 - 9

Our History

Temple Christian College has been blessed by God from its inception in 1983 with a strong biblical basis for its existence. Under the banner of one leadership we celebrate and encourage the unique life and development of each campus in the knowledge that each of our three locations embrace and represent the fullness of our vision:

  • Marion Middle School - Year 7 to 9 (then transitioning to the Mile End Campus)
  • Mile End Campus – Year 7 to 12
  • Paralowie Campus – Year 7 to 12

As a Christ centered, faith based educational facility, Temple Christian College is proud to offer its students the opportunity to experience life in an authentic Christian community.

Our Governing Body

Together with Sunrise Christian Schools, Temple Christian College operates under the governance and leadership of Adelaide Christian Schools.

Since 1976, the role of Adelaide Christian Schools (ACS) has been to oversee, govern and support a number of schools both in Australia and overseas. These schools are co-educational and have several structures from ELC-7 through to R-12 settings. Currently there are 9 Australian schools under the governance of the ACS inclusive of the Sunrise and Temple Campuses.

Their aim is to provide training in Godly character and in academics from a Biblical perspective.

The schools are governed by a Board with membership comprising individuals with vast experience and expertise from a variety of industry sectors. The Board works closely with Committees and Advisory Groups that have been established in each school community to engage with local leadership at a grass roots level, providing an opportunity for local input and expression.

We feel very blessed to have on staff a skilled and experienced leadership team who are like minded in their Christian standards and ethos and are passionate in demonstrating a shared set of values that builds upon the strong foundations of the campus.

Working in partnership with the leadership teams from the Mile End and Paralowie Campuses, our leadership team here at the Marion Middle School are united in their commitment towards: an on-going commitment to the Lord Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, consistent with the Biblical standards of Adelaide Christian Centre:

  • a proven life style founded on Biblical Christian principles.
  • a life that demonstrates the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.
  • a willingness to affirm the foundation statements and principles promulgated by the College and ACS.
  • a strong commitment to Christian Education and a determination to serve God in a Christian school community.

Community – a core value.

We are all brothers and sisters in Christ, intentionally created in the image of God to live and to learn in community. We strive for all students at Temple to experience belonging and connection to the Christian community that is our school.

Supporting Values:

Respect for others leads to feeling valued as well as feelings of trust, safety and wellbeing. The Temple student will show a high regard for people and the environment. Students are required to consider how their individual decisions will impact those around them.

Working together to reach a common goal. The Temple student values teamwork, cooperation, and effective communication.

This value aligns with the belief that individuals, inspired by their faith, have the ability and responsibility to positively impact the world around them through their actions and choices. The Temple student will show agency through demonstrating initiative and actively participating in school life making positive contributions.

Our Spiritual Life

At Temple Christian College we are very deliberate in creating opportunities for the development and expression of our faith. Fostering personal growth in spiritual life is a core part of our vision and for this reason campus life at our schools is rich in activities open to the whole school community.

Throughout the school year, staff, students, families and friends have the opportunity to join us in a number of these opportunities including: praise and worship assemblies, Christian Living classes, regular devotions and prayer.

At Temple Christian College we believe that the Holy Scriptures are the inspired word of God. As such, they are infallible. They alone constitute the sole and absolute authority in all matters pertaining to Christian faith and practice.
