About / Governance

School Governance

Maranatha Christian School is a public company, limited by guarantee, and subject to regulation by the Australian Securities Commission and the Corporations Law. It is not governed by any one church or denomination.

We believe the final authority for children’s education lies with the parents. At Maranatha Christian School the authority that parents have is exercised through the elected Board of Directors which is legally responsible for the governance of the school.


Associate Levy

Every year, each parent and staff member is charged an Association levy to support the work of the Association. The levy is included in the calculation of monies due to the school invoiced at the beginning of the year. All parents are able to attend and speak at meetings but do not have voting rights and are not eligible to be considered for Board appointment.

Association Members

Association Membership is open to parents, staff and others who can demonstrate a commitment to Christ, to the school and to Christ-centred education. Members have voting rights and are eligible to be considered for Board appointment (unless staff).

There is an annual membership fee in addition to the Association levy.


The Board comprises of Association Members who are elected for three-year terms, for a maximum of three terms. They focus on governance and delegates to the Principal the day to day responsibility of leading the school. The Board is always searching for new directors to ensure it has appropriate skills and talents to be good stewards of all God has given us, and to make good decisions for the future of the School.
