Gawa community on Elcho Island is seeking a middle/senior teacher to work with our boys and the community elders to educate and shape the next generation of leaders.  There has never been a better time to apply your knowledge and experience of education 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 passionate and experienced secondary teacher, ready to teach, live, play and serve on Elcho Island at GAWA community.

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

About the role

Yawirriny’ is the term for initiated young men, which within the school context spans the middle and senior years.  Reflecting traditional learning where young men learn from older men, our elders desire that a significant part of the school day is dedicated to young men learning together.  Guided by the Australian Curriculum, traditional ancient knowledge and a biblical worldview, the Yawirriny’gu Teacher will champion the areas of raypirrimirr (having discipline), margikunhamirr (having/giving knowledge) and guga’yunamirr (giving/receiving help).

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.

“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”. – Principal, Rachel Herweynen, Gäwa Christian School.
