Since 2011 Coffs Harbour Christian Community School has had a sister-school relationship with Harapan Schools in Bali - Harapan Denpasar, SDK Maranatha Blimbingsari and SMPK Harapan Melaya. Through this sister-school relationship the two schools have a number of initiatives and joint-programs. These include the Skype Program (see separate heading below) and the Teacher-Exchange Program. The teacher exchange program involves teachers from Harapan School come to work at CHCCS as a native-speaker assistant. Teachers can come for up to one year to work together with the teachers at both our Junior and Senior school campuses. This provides students with access to Indonesian native-speakers on a regular basis. This program also helps to promote new elements into the Indonesia Program such as Indonesian music, drama and dance.
In February 2016 CHCCS began another sister-school relationship with Sekolah Dasar Bina Insan Mandiri Sejahtera (known as SD BIMS) which is located in Badung, Bali. This relationship will be primarily focused on expanding our Bali Buddies program within this school.
