Carmelo Rubio

Carmelo Rubio


I love working at Warwick Christian College as the principal and am passionate about Christian education. I started working for Christian Community Ministries (CCM) as a teacher at Groves Christian College in 2005 where I taught until I became the Head of the second campus in 2015.

Warwick is a beautiful city and the College has some wonderful buildings and facilities, but the most important part of this school is the children, families and staff. I have been married to my beautiful wife Nicole, since 1986, the same year we became Christians. God has dramatically changed our lives and blessed us with four wonderful children and one grandson.

My personal hobbies include, squash, table tennis, mountain walks, coffee.

Steve Pearson

Steve Pearson

Head of Pastoral Care

My name is Steven Pearson, and I have had the privilege of being a part of the Christian Community Ministries group of schools since 2013. I am currently undertaking a Master degree in Curriculum and Pedagogical Leadership.

During my time in Christian Community Ministries Colleges I have taught Secondary Mathematics, Senior Mathematics B, Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Biblical Studies, and was part of the team that implemented and taught Digital Technologies at Dalby Christian College for years 7 to 10.

I moved to Warwick in 2017 and took on the role of Secondary Science teacher, and more recently have been appointed to the position of Head of Pastoral Care.

As an educator and leader, I believe strongly in the teaching of Proverbs 22: 6, which says:

“Train a child up in the way he should go, and even when he is old he will not depart from it.”
