Marketing a Christian School - How to use this website
This website and the Why Christian Schools videos and 8 page booklet have been produced by Covenant Christian School
Sydney to help promote and market Christian Schools. It is designed to start discussions. The Why Christian Schools videos
deliberately do not mention Covenant Christian School.
At Covenant we believe:
- we are blessed to be a blessing
- our work in Christian education is part of God's Kingdom work and should help others beyond our own school community
- parents have responsibility to raise their children. Schools can partner and help them - but not do it for them.
- the most effective way of prospective parents hearing about Christian schools is by word or mouth - one parent talking to another.
This website and DVD is designed to help this - not replace it.
- parents believe the testimony of other like minded parents more than professional Christian educators. Therefore this video is
predominately interviews with Christian parents.
