The Early Days

The vision for Maranatha Christian School extends back to Dutch migrants in the early 1950s. They sought to establish a school with a curriculum taught from a biblical worldview. It was also important to the founders that the School be non-denominational and be governed by parents, as opposed to any one church. After about 20 years of fundraising and planning, Maranatha was officially opened on 7 March 1970, with classes from Prep to Year 6. Our second campus opened in 1983 at Endeavour Hills, followed by our third campus, which opened in 2006 at Officer.
