Our History

Founded in 2004 with 8 inaugural students we have continued to grow into a boutique school that caters for all.

Built on the understanding that the college will provide a positive, caring and nurturing learning environment, whereby the individual student can develop as a whole person within a loving and supportive community.

The college was designed to provide the firm foundations of the Orthodox faith as well as Greek language and culture. As the college has consistently maintained small class sizes, attention is paid to each student’s individual needs and goals.

Why Christian Values are critical to our school

We are a Christian school and as part of the Orthodox Church we are committed to mould our children with respect to Christian values. The Christian faith is at the centre of the School’s focus on enriching the minds, bodies and spirits of its students. Our school Chaplain leads our school in ensuring the wellbeing of our children is cared for.
We believe strong Christian values are more important today than they have ever been. The following attributes will be instilled into your child as part of their education at Saint Spyridon College.

  • Respect
  • Trust
  • Listening
  • Love
  • Learning
  • Friendship

Students are empowered through development of character, social skills, personal excellence and community involvement.

Who is Saint Spyridion


Saint Spyridon was born at the end of the third century AD in Cyprus, an island in the Mediterranean Sea. He was an uneducated shepherd with a wife and children and an immense love and faith in God. After the death of his wife, he was made Bishop and spent the remainder of his life giving pastoral care and performing charitable acts.
