Board Member Roles

Melos is a Greek word which refers to a member of the body,
or a part belonging to the whole.

In Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.
Romans 12:5

ABOUT MELOS

Recently a new concept has been emerging in the Australian Christian school sector. Traditionally Schools have been independent and while they may have had a second campus or a pre-school, very few groups of schools or systems existed. A new model is emerging of schools banding together to come under a common governance structure and to share expertise in business operations and school leadership.

In response to this identified need, Melos Education Limited was formed in 2020. Originally established as the Melos Foundation, recent structural changes have led to the adoption of a new name – Melos Education Limited trading as the Melos Group.

The idea is based on an approach that sees school companies relieved of the burden of governance and where there is a Church involved, allows a focus on ministry partnership between Church and School. Single board governance of the Group sees schools and Churches able to focus again on their central purpose as schools and on ministry with the schools by their founding Church.

At present the Melos Group operates the following schools – Green Point Christian College, Yattalunga Valley Christian School, Brewarrina Christian School, Greenacre Christian College, Yanginanook School and Moree Christian School.
