Greetings in the name of our wonderful Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ! Welcome to the School of Education
Welcome to the School of Education at Christ’s University in Pacific. We are proud to state that Christian Education at CUP is a Christ – centered, Bible based process of leading students to Christ, teaching them obedience to Christ, equipping them with knowledge, attitude and skills for effective service for God. It is indeed a joy and a privilege to be a part of God’s ministry in teaching both current and future prospect teachers to be effective and competent Christians as shepherds, servant leaders in the classroom and to be Christian educational administrators. It is our utmost desire to engrave the living Word of God in the hearts of our students and teachers; to lead students to Christ and to the Holy Spirit who will kindle a flame we cannot light for them, a fire which they must get from God themselves.
We will provide education majors with educational training from a Biblical perspective which will be an education in either Early Childhood, Elementary or Secondary educational administration. This training will be practical in application, experiential in nature; designed to make the student competent and prepared in his teaching career; and designed to thoroughly equip the student to pursue graduate studies.
Education majors will be provided with opportunities to realize their own potentials; to cultivate a sensitivity to the spiritual needs of the work all around them; a commitment to the Christian way of life; appreciation of cultural heritage; competency in teaching organized, disciplined, systematic subject matter; and to ensure the survival of God’s commandment for Christian education in our nation. (Deuteronomy 6:1-12).
Education majors must realize that continuation in the teaching career is dependent upon an ongoing evaluation of the student’s teaching and/or academic progress. A degree in education is subject to successful teaching experiences. A student may be removed at any time from the education major and/ or teaching experiences if in the opinion of the faculty/administration the student fails to perform satisfactorily or improve sufficiently in the appropriate teaching skills, regardless of the student’s academic average in the program or particular course.
May God alone be honoured and glorified in our School of Education and in our lives and all aspects of our Christ’s University in Pacific.
With respect and sincere gratitude,
Dr. Gladys Irene Fonua PH.D, Ed.S, M.A, B.A
Head of School
