Council and NTCS membership

Northern Territory Christian Schools is a member-based organisation with a layered governance structure. Governance involves Christian parents shaping the policies and strategic direction of the organisation at system and local level.

Good governance is a ministry and by engaging in it, we are maximising our effectiveness as a Christian organisation working in the ministry of education.

It is the members who protect, preserve and perpetuate a vision for distinctively Christian education, as our schools seek to support parents in their Biblical mandate to “train up a child in the way they should go” (Proverbs 22:6). Members elect the Board and the Board is responsible for governance of the entire organisation. 

Members of each local school community also elect a School Council that functions as a sub-committee of the Board. The role of each School Council is to make specific governance decisions that are relevant for that school community, within mutually agreed parameters delegated by the Board. These parameters give local empowerment to School Councils to do many things in ways that reflect the unique characteristics of their school community.
