  • *********SPECIAL UPDATE*********

    We are excited that there is consultation around a new/amended Enrolment Scheme for Timaru Christian School.

    This is because the Ministry of Education has identified that we are likely to experience a situation where there is more demand for enrolments than there are places available within the maximum roll and they have given the School Board notice of this.

    You can read about this at:  and complete the survey to place your feedback.  Please read all the information on the above website when placing your feedback. The Consultation closes on 7th June 2021. Copies of the proposed enrolment scheme and the survey are available at the school office.


    Picture5Timaru Christian School is a Year 1-10 state-integrated non-denominational Christian School. That means we learn everything you would expect us to learn about but we get to talk about God too! We learn to see and understand that God is an important part of everything we learn about, everything we do, and every moment in our day.

    With about 130 students we have a wonderful community where we know and care for one another.
    If you would like to get to know more about us, please feel free to contact Bethany Rentoul (Principal) and she would love to share more about who we are. Check us out on Facebook too!
