Is a Pastor/Minister's reference required?
This is a required component of your Application and provides one perspective used to determine whether or not a student is offered a placement. Through this document, we are seeking to understand whether our future families are committed to their faith in Jesus Christ and a Christian life. Northside Christian College's requirement is that families must provide this reference to verify their regular attendance (3-4 services per month, minimum of 12 months).
Do I get an automatic enrollment into Northside Christian College if my child is enrolled in Next Steps Kindy?
Entry to Northside Christian College has an independent application process. Please see the application process and criteria.
Does your child have to be dedicated, baptised, or christened in the church?
Northside is a Christian school for Christian families, with approximately 100 churches represented by the student body. Consequently, we respect the differences between various Christian denominations around such matters as infant, child, or adult dedications, baptisms, confirmations or christenings; yet also require our families to respect, accept and encourage your children to participate in the Christian education and practices of the College.
Are students required to be immunised to attend Northside?
Northside Christian College recognises the decision to immunise your child is a personal one. We recommend parents speak with their general practitioner and review the Queensland Government’s publications on the benefits of immunisation.

We have recently laid the foundations to be able to offer this in the future.

Yes, we welcome families of single parents, and even have situations where grand-parents or other sole guardians of children come to Northside seeking a great Christian educational experience for their children.
How do you define "A Christian"
At Northside Christian College, we believe that a Christian is a person who has made Jesus Christ both Saviour and Lord of his/her life. That is, a Christian is a person who:
- believes that Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, died and rose again
- has recognised his/her sinful condition
- has received forgiveness of his/her sins through faith in Jesus Christ and
- seeks to live his/her life in obedience to God’s Word.
Christianity is, in essence, an ongoing relationship with God – not just a Sunday morning event, but a way of life.
