A MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE PRINCIPAL
MRS NATASHA MACKINNON
I am thrilled to welcome you to Leighland Christian School where we aspire to be a hope
filled Christian school, pioneering personalised, real-world education.
As the Executive Principal, I have the privilege of leading a dedicated team of K-12
educators and staff across two campuses who are committed to developing the whole child,
equipping them with the knowledge, skills, and character to succeed in all aspects of life. In
1976 Leighland Christian School commenced with just 36 students in Ulverstone. This year,
there are 657 students from Kindergarten to Year 12, with campuses in both Ulverstone
(Kinder through to Year 12) and Burnie (Kinder through to Year 6).
Leighland Christian School is providing bold Christian education for the North West Coast of
Tasmania and allowing students and teachers the opportunity to explore the basis of a
relationship with God while seeking to live together according to the principles established in
the Bible. We believe that every student has the potential to make a positive impact in the
world, and we strive to foster that potential through delivering a Christ-centred K-12
education that inspires, nurtures, and equips students to connect learning to life.
At Leighland Christian School, we offer a comprehensive hands-on curriculum that
integrates a biblical worldview, faith-based values and principles with academic rigour. Our
students benefit from a wide range of extracurricular activities, including sports, music,
drama, and community service opportunities. We also provide a safe and supportive learning
environment that encourages students to explore their interests and develop their God-given
As you explore our website, you will find more information about our exciting school's vision,

community and experience the Leighland Christian School difference.
Thank you for considering Leighland Christian School, and we look forward to the
opportunity to partner with you in shaping the future leaders of tomorrow.
