There has never been a better time to apply your knowledge and experience of mentoring and raising teenagers to a Kingdom cause.  Don’t miss this opportunity to help shape the future generation in the Territory with Northern Territory Christian Schools.  We are seeking a married couple with a desire to manage a house of approximately 10 student boarders coming to Marrara Christian College from outback communities.

On behalf of the Principal and School Council, we invite you to apply now to join the NT Christian Schools’ network of schools.

About this role

Your main responsibility will be managing the daily operations of the Family Group Home, which includes caring for students, providing meals, establishing routines, maintaining the house, and communicating with parents, communities, and teachers in a manner that aligns with Christian principles.  This should be done while ensuring that students receive a Christ-centred education as outlined in the Policies and Procedures of NT Christian Schools.

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

“At Marrara we seek to provide an education that is Christ centred, biblically grounded, academically rigorous and culturally engaging.  We are committed to loving the students entrusted to us.  That expresses itself by seeking what is in the best interest of those in our school community, especially the students in our care. Our students are God’s “image bearers” which gives them inherent worth.  This is also true of our staff and parents.  As an educational institution we strive to stretch our students academically and to provide an environment that is safe and nurturing in which they can flourish.  As part of that, students are expected to be respectful of staff and of the learning of other students.”
