Pioneering at Seaview Christian College

20 June 2016 | Author: Sandra Scott

South Australia’s newest Christian school, Seaview Christian College in Port Augusta is approaching half a year of operation. Husband and wife team Jannie and Louise Basson are focussed on providing good learning outcomes for their 19 current students, while expecting enrolments to grow considerably in the coming years.

Pioneering a school is challenging and very hard work, but it is so fulfilling to see something beautiful rise up from nowhere – a vision from God becoming reality. Keep Jannie and Louise in your prayers and ask God to provide all their needs each day. They welcome visitors to the school, particularly work parties, TRT’s and new families!

Situated at the head of the Spencer Gulf, Port Augusta is known as the “Crossroads of Australia” and the Gateway to the spectacular Flinders Ranges and outback. While the city has struggled with employment issues, the recently announced proposal for a huge solar thermal plant which would employ up to 600 construction workers and 100 permanent staff is a terrific morale booster. Premier Jay Weatherill says that South Australia can lead the nation in efficient, cheap renewable energy. Sydney-based company Solastor aims to build a one megawatt demonstration plant by the end of this year and connect it to Port Augusta’s existing grid.

Exciting times to be in Port Augusta!
