Principal’s welcome

Dear Parents and Guardians

I would like to welcome you all to the 2023 school year.

Originally from western Sydney, my family and I have been part of the NT Christian Schools community for more than ten years. During that time, I have worked as PE Coordinator, Head of School, Principal of Marrara Christian College and Principal of NT Christian College.

I am deeply passionate about Christian Education and creating school communities in which every student is recognised as being made in the image of God and being loved by Him. 

At NT Christian College (NTCC), we have developed our approach to senior school education over 30 years. These decades of learning have given us a quiet confidence in our ability to provide our senior students with both exceptional care and a rigorous academic program. Partnering with parents, families and local communities, we aim to see each senior school student flourish in their education, school community and lives beyond school.

Our current cohort of NTCC senior students is a special bunch. They are brimming with talent, skill, passion and vision. I am continually inspired by their desire to make a difference in our rapidly changing world— a task they approach with insight and determination.

This year will undoubtedly present our senior students with obstacles and opportunities to stretch and grow as individuals. As NTCC Principal, I am confident they will rise to meet these challenges and emerge stronger and wiser, with a greater capacity for love and compassion. 

If you are not yet part of our NTCC community and are visiting this website, welcome! Thank you for taking the time to explore NTCC. We look forward to partnering with you.

Yours in Christ,

Joel van Bentum
