Transforming Today's Teens

For over 20 years The Rite Journey has been providing unique educational programs to support the development of self-aware, responsible, respectful, resilient and resourceful adults.

Our LCS Context

How does the Rite Journey embody the values and beliefs of our Christian Perspective?

Our school has a commitment to 5 core values:

  • To live in obedience to God
  • To act with humility, integrity and fairness
  • To work with creativity and diligence
  • To encourage participation and teamwork
  • To be trustworthy and accountable to each other

A detailed scope will be published on the Hub at the start of every term.

More thoughts from LCS community

‘The topics that TRJ explores are relevant to our adolescents. The facilitation of the program provides many opportunities for students to have “safe” discussions and led in a way that leads back to God’s purposes and will.’

Mrs Irene Niebuur – Head of Junior School and Mother.

‘Under the right circumstances boys (kids) can be relied upon to step up and be counted, and having duties and responsibilities to perform, is one way of providing for the right circumstance to foster the sense of purpose that comes from serving others.’

Mr. Terry Lake – Teacher and Father

'Our teen transition is all about risks. We have to take them. Often we’ll fall as we figure out who we are, and who we want to be. It’s a full-on season with a whirlwind of choices, directions, hormones (!!!), and so many social pressures and confusing messages.’

Mrs Margaret Dingemanse – Board Member and Mother.

‘Even though many have not yet made sense of the Christian Gospel, I believe they need to be gently challenged about what they would like to achieve in life and to whom they will look for help.’

Ps. Noel Eagling – Local Pastor, TRJ Mentor and Father.
