Pacific Hills Culture

Logo

Since Biblical times the fish, or 'icthus', has been a symbol used by Christians as an identifying mark. 'Icthus' is an acronym that stands for 'Jesus Christ Son of God Saviour'. It is also the Greek word for fish.

The symbol of the fish was used by early Christians to identify each other when they were being persecuted for their faith. They used the 'icthus' symbol to mark their homes and traced it in the dirt when they met each other, showing that they shared the same faith. Today the fish is still used as a symbol of Christianity.

  • As a Christian educational community, we have chosen the icthus symbol to represent the essence of our school as being Christ centred.
  • The secondary element of the water ripple, with the cool blue and green tonings, reflects the link in our school name to the Pacific Region.
  • Finally, the tail has been created in an upward orientation to form a cross, symbolising the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus.

Strategic Alliances – Meet Our Friends

Pacific Hills Christian School recognises that it is part of the larger collection of Christian Educators and Communities. We know that we gain value from interacting with groups who share our heart for seeing lives changed by God to serve in His world. Together with these our friends and allies we celebrate unity of purpose; diversity of context; faithfulness in fellowship.

School Song

God Builds Our Future Here

Learning to live, living to learn.

Growing in knowledge, strengthened with power.

His future calls us, a generation growing.

In wisdom and knowledge hidden in Him.


He builds our future here, through living in wisdom here.

In Christ united to share a common faith.
Christ's calling compels us to share a common goal.
God building our future here in the mystery of Christ.


Encouraged in heart, united in love.
Complete understanding the mystery of God.

The treasures of wisdom, the depths of His knowledge.

Hidden in Christ, completed in Him.


He builds our future here, through living in wisdom here.

In Christ united to share a common faith.
Christ's calling compels us to share a common goal.

God building our future here, in living and learning here.
The assurance of destiny, in the mystery of Christ.
