LIBERTY COLLEGE IS SPECIAL
Liberty College has a special focus on three aspects of school life. It is these aspects that will help every student fulfil their potential in Christ.
Commitment to Literacy
The school is committed to supporting students in Literacy. A whole school phonemic awareness program is used in the classroom in addition to a wide range of high interest reading material. The MULTILIT and MINILIT programs are also utilised to support students in Literacy.
Commitment to Small Classes
Liberty College has a long term commitment to small class sizes. It is our intention to have a maximum of 24 students in each class. This will allow more individual attention to be given and thus provide each student the best opportunity for the maximisation of their learning.
Commitment to Family
A family atmosphere is nurtured and encouraged, both in the classroom and in the playground, so that every child is accepted and recognised as a unique and special person. Students are actively encouraged to care for one another and to have a forgiving attitude in every situation.
"Both my children currently attend Liberty and it is such a blessing to our lives. I love the family atmosphere provided and the fact that knowing my children and their individual needs are important; they are not just another number. They are being nurtured and encouraged to grow into their full potential. Highly recommended to anyone, it’s such an amazing school!"

Canteen occurs twice each term and provides students with an item for recess or lunch. Parents volunteer for this through the Parent Club. Their role includes: menu ideas,
purchasing food, cooking, serving and cleaning up the kitchen. Canteen is usually held on a Tuesday with orders and payment due the Friday beforehand.
Crunch & Sip®
Liberty is a Crunch & Sip® registered school. Students are encouraged to bring fresh fruit and vegetables for a mid-morning snack and drink water.
On WEDNESDAYS students place their uncut fruit and vegetables in a bowl and the food is cut and placed on platters for students to share. This encourages students to try different foods and provides a timely break mid-morning to refuel.
Year 5 & 6 students participate in mainly music each Friday morning from 10:15 -11:45am during term time. This is a great opportunity to serve others and learn some technical skills associated with sound and audio production.
mainly music is a ministry of Liberty Church for parents, carers and under school age children. The kids participate in singing, rhyming, dancing and movement activities.
Bucket-fillers is a character development Program.
Concept: Everyone carries an invisible bucket that holds our good thoughts and feelings. When our buckets are full, we feel happy and when our buckets are empty, we feel sad.
Children quickly understand that they can fill buckets when they do and say things that are kind, considerate, caring, and respectful. They also learn that when they are mean, inconsiderate,
uncaring, or disrespectful, they dip into buckets and remove those good feelings. Even the youngest child understands that actions and words can either fill a bucket or dip into it.
During this school year we are encouraging, reminding, and recognizing everyone’s efforts to be bucket fillers at home, at school, and everywhere they go.
