For fifty years Macksville Adventist School has offered quality Christian co-education to students in the Nambucca Valley.
On 31st January 1967, Macksville Adventist School commenced operation with seventeen students. By the end of the year the enrolments had grown to twenty-four. Classes were run in the church hall, and the local church community were involved in extensive fund-raising activities to support the operations of the school. After two years of operating debt free, the decision was made to purchase property to build a dedicated school building for the growing school community. It took several years of planning before land was purchased and a school building was erected. The official opening of the building, on its current site, was held in October, 1984.
To this day, Macksville Adventist School continues to effectively guide students successfully through the primary years of their education, at the same time caring for their social, spiritual and emotional well-being.
Throughout its existence, Macksville Adventist School has always maintained a strong Christian focus. Established by the Seventh-day Adventist church, its strong association with the church continues, providing solid governance and leadership.
