Illawarra Christian School is operated by Illawarra Christian Education.
The Association is primarily made up of Christian men and women from our school community and of all the schools operated by Illawarra Christian Education.
The Association is a group of like-minded Christian people who have joined together to ensure that their goals of providing Christian Education are met. When the Association meets together, it is the prime decision making body of the school. As an incorporated body it is bound by relevant State and federal laws and by any internal rules it imposes upon itself. The Constitution, particularly the Educational Creed, provides the framework for the operation of the Association and its members.
The Association, which elects the Board, may:
- Develop and approve policy
- Take recommendations to the Board
- Seek explanations of Board directions
- Direct the Board
Decisions are arrived at by a majority vote of financial members.
Members of the Association have a responsibility to act in Christ-like manner towards one another. They should give due consideration to the well-being of the whole community. Members ought always to pursue right relationships with one another. The framework for dealing with any issue of concern is set out in the Resolution of Issues Policy.
