Our School Patron
Rabban Hurmizd was born in the mid 17th century in the city of Shiraz, now known as Ahwaz in Iran.
His father’s name was Joseph and his mother’s name was Thecla. This Saint grew up in a household full of true Christian faith. His parents were devoted to fasting, praying and helping people in need.
We foster the heritage and Christian values of the Assyrian Church of the East, developing individuals who strive for excellence, are life-long learners, and live their faith.
We provide students of any background a unique education based on 21st century pedagogy in order to equip them with the necessary skills to be active Australian citizens, reflecting the faith, heritage, language and culture of the Assyrian Church of the East.
