Our Commitment

Come as you are

Hamilton District Christian High is committed to practising Christian hospitality in the form of exceptional customer service to anyone who visits our school or who attends our events, including anyone with disabilities.

This commitment means that we do our best to provide our goods and services to people with disabilities in a manner that respects their dignity and independence, while at the same time gives them the same opportunity to access our goods and services, and allows them to benefit from the same services, in the same place and in a similar way, as all other customers.

Assistive Devices

We will ensure that all members of our organisation are trained and familiar with any assistive devices we have on site or that we provide that may be used by customers with disabilities while accessing our goods or services.

All members of our organization have been trained and are familiar with various types of assistive devices that may be used by customers with disabilities while accessing our goods and services.


We will communicate with people with disabilities in ways that take into account their disability.

Service Animals

We welcome people with disabilities and their service animals. Service animals are allowed on the parts of our premises that are open to the public. On the rare occasion when it is not readily apparent, members of our organisation may ask for clarification confirming that the service animal is required for reasons relating to disability, and/or may ask for documentation from a regulated health professional confirming the need for the service animal.

Support Persons

A person with a disability who is accompanied by a support person will be allowed to have that person accompany them on our premises. HDCH does not charge additional fees to support workers who are attending with a disabled person at one of our workshops or other events. In certain cases, HDCH may require a person with a disability to be accompanied by a support person for health and safety reasons. Before making such a decision, HDCH commits to consultation with the person with disabilities to better understand their needs, to consider health or safety reasons based on available evidence, and to determine if there is no other reasonable way to protect the health of anyone on our premises.
