After 30 years offering classes from kindergarten to Year 10, Kuyper Christian School is set to add years 11 and 12 next year. 

The addition of the senior years has been welcomed by families at the school as students will be able to complete all their schooling in one place.

Kuyper Christian School principal Geoff Hewitt told the Gazette that the additional years of schooling being added to their curriculum was a blessing for all his students. 

‘‘Many Kuyper families have been asking for this for a number of years now,’’ Mr Hewitt said. 

‘‘They are excited that it is now all going ahead.

‘‘It is now giving the students another option for their senior years.’’ 

The addition of the senior years will also mean more teachers for the school but the final figure has not been determined, Mr Hewitt said.

‘‘We will have additional staff added to our facility, but it does depend on the number of students we have enrolled for those years,’’ he said. ‘‘To start with, students will study the HSC by correspondence mode in conjunction with OTEN (Open Training and Education Network).

‘‘At the same time, students will attend school at Kuyper during the normal school day, where they will be supervised and supported by experienced school staff.’’
