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.


“Here at Marrara we’re about crafted teaching. For us, all learning is formational. Formational learning is about helping students learn with their head, connect that knowledge to their heart, and see it outworked through their hands in their daily lives.  We have a fantastic and committed staff here who are driven to support our students and care for them along their learning journeys so that they can be who God has created them to.” – Joel van Bentum, Principal, Marrara Christian College
