Our History

Shalom Christian College was founded in 1992 by visionary members of Congress, the Indigenous arm of the Uniting Church.

In 2018 Carinity purchased Shalom Christian College and were delighted to be continuing the operation of the school in 2019.

In 2019 Carinity launched the high school with a Year 7 cohort, catering for students from Prep to Year 7.  By 2024 we will be offering all grades from Prep to Year 12.

In 2021 Shalom Christian College was officially renamed Carinity Education Shalom and continues to thrive and grow, with student numbers doubling since 2019.

Carinity (formerly Queensland Baptist Care) has been making a real difference in people’s lives since 1949 through comprehensive and integrated community services. These include the provision of care to the frail aged, education services, shelters for homeless youth, helping families and young people through difficult times, support for people with disability, retirement lifestyle communities and chaplaincy support at hospitals.


“Welcoming students everyday and providing that morning breakfast, is a great opportunity for me to check in with staff and students. It shows them I appreciate them being here, and I care about them. It sets the tone for the day at school, and fosters a positive relationship.”
