Christ centred

Students learn to seek God’s plan for their lives and to know Him intimately.

A community approach to learning

Our wider community helps teach and care for students, supporting them to grow strong in their identity.

About our school

We desire our students and staff to ‘know and learn the truth’ by being part of a learning community where God is glorified in everything we do. 

Gäwa Christian School is located on Elcho Island, in Warramiri land. As well as training students in God’s law and teaching the Northern Territory school curriculum, we seek to preserve Warramiri knowledge and the gifts of the wider Yolŋu culture.
