A Great Place to Work!

Looking for a rich country experience? Looking to develop your teaching and leadership experience? Wanting to be a part of an emerging force in education? Then we have the school for you!

Parkes Christian School is located in the central west of NSW, within easy reach of cities such as Orange, Bathurst, Canberra and Dubbo. Parkes Shire Council says, “Enjoy the space, the lifestyle and more affordable housing that Parkes has to offer. Parkes is a thriving inland centre, large enough to provide quality education, employment and investment opportunities whilst still small enough to provide a quaint rural lifestyle where most things are only a 2-minute traffic-free drive away and you can duck home for lunch”. Not to mention “The Dish” and the annual Elvis Festival. Parkes is a great place to raise a family!

Parkes Christian School has been operating for 37 years and has over 220 students from K-12. However, 2019 will see only its fifth HSC cohort. The cohesive staff body, dynamic leadership and supportive community make PCS an exciting and satisfying place to teach.
