Board and Association

Berakah-Logo-FINAL-250px.jpg

Our school works as a partnership; staff, parents and carers, and supporters working together for the educational and spiritual benefit of our students. As such, Wellington Christian School is governed by a parent-controlled Association called Berakah Christian Education Ltd (BCE). “Berakah” means “blessing” in Hebrew, which is what we aim to be in all we do. BCE is made up of active and committed Christian members of our school community and oversees the governance of Wellington Christian School, Dubbo Christian School, and Dubbo Christian Preschool. Members actively own the Statement of Faith and Educational Creed Wellington Christian School aligns itself with, and help the school maintain the standards as outlined in those documents.

Our Board is elected from Association members and is responsible for the vision, direction, governance and policy of the school. According to the Association Constitution, the Board’s objective is to pursue the following purposes:

  • To operate the schools providing Christ-centred, Bible-based education. Such operations are to be grounded in the principles outlined in the Statement of Faith and Educational Creed. ‚Äč
  • To promote Christian education through affiliation with any other organisations that promote our objectives.

As parents of the school community, the Board is available to discuss the matters relating to the governance of the school. The Board Chair can be contacted by email at boardchair@dubbocs.edu.au.
