Join our dedicated team in the beautiful Elcho Island and impact a remote community in the Northern Territory.  Empower and inspire young minds, embrace Indigenous heritage, and promote development in an administrative capacity.

About this role
This position entails offering extensive administrative assistance to the Principal, managing meetings, HR duties, enrolment support, and compliance efforts.  Additionally, tasks involve supervising the school shop, delivering First Aid to students, and partnering with Marthakal Health during their school visits to maintain accurate records.

NT Christian Schools exists to advance the Christian religion through the provision of education and religious instruction.  For the purposes of upholding the Christian ethos of our schools, it is a genuine occupational qualification of this role that applicants be able to teach religious education, lead, and otherwise assist in, religious practices and observances and personally adhere to, uphold, and authentically model the religious beliefs of NT Christian Schools.

What we offer
“Living and working remote is a calling that must be taken out of obedience and trust in the Triune God.  All the support in the world will be found lacking if one’s security is not in God Himself. Honesty is our starting point.  Those who come for a life of comfort will not find it here. Whilst beautiful, Gäwa is a battlefield, and we fight for turning hearts towards Jesus and His Kingdom.  God calls us to faithfulness and community.  Through Jesus and with each other, we have victory”. – Rachel Herweynen, Principal, Gäwa Christian School
