EPIC stands for…
Empowering Parents Inspiring Children. It comprises three sections of activity.
Spiritual development is an important aspect of EPIC. At Gateway, we operate several classes on Saturday mornings (10am to 10:45am) from Babies & Toddlers through to High School. These are age appropriate classes designed to develop an understanding of God and a desire to be part of his family.
This program is designed to give parents the resources to make a difference to all children. This extends far beyond the classroom to what we call EPIC Adventures. Epic Adventures runs once a month on a Sabbath afternoon and has been planned intentionally to allow inspiring interaction between adults and children in a fun but challenging outdoor environment. The activities range from beach walking, to bush walking, to bike riding. Each activity is designed to push the boundaries of what each child typical encounters and to enhance their self-confidence through their achievements.
Several special social events for children such as Water Day, Soccer Stars and Social nights are run at Avondale School through the year. These are open to everyone to enjoy.
