Gilson College - Mernda Campus

Mernda VIC, Melbourne Northern Suburbs

The educational activities of the college are designed to provide opportunities for all students to achieve their maximum development intellectually, spiritually, socially and physically. The process of education involves the continued development of a set of values upon which all decisions depend. Christian Education seeks to enhance sensitivity to values that are in harmony with God’s will. The development of character and personality based upon a love for God, unselfish concern for others and personal self-respect, is basic to all curricular objectives. The concept that every child is a candidate for heaven and that education is a preparation not only for life in society today and the future, but also for eternity, is implicit in the total curriculum.

Seventh-day Adventists believe in the reality of God the Creator, and that humanity was created in God’s image. We have fallen from His original perfection through sin. The ultimate aim of Christian Education is the restoration of the image of God in people through the redemptive power of Jesus Christ.

We believe that an understanding of the world and ourselves is enhanced by an acceptance of the Holy Scriptures as a measure of reality and truth. Education is a search for truth and therefore is guided not only by reason, but also by the revealed will of God in the Bible. We are endowed with intelligent powers of choice and are accountable to God in every aspect of life.

The programs of, and teaching in Gilson College support and promote the principles and practice of Australian democracy, including a commitment to:

  • elected government
  • the rule of law
  • equal rights for all before the law
