The vision for a Christian school in Palmerston began in the early 1980’s. That vision was realised on the 8th of February, 1988, 36 students and 2 teachers attended, for the very first time, at Palmerston Christian School.

The grounds were wet and muddy on that very first day in the middle of the wet season and the buildings few but the years that followed were exciting. The school community worked hard to provide beautiful grassed areas and gardens and with the natural bush surroundings the students were eager to attend school.

Many activities commenced that first year – sports days, camps, carnivals and pie days to name a few. As the years progressed more activities were added including fetes and character days. The concerts have been legendary and the fundraising fun. PCS has always been a community in action.

In 1997 Middle Schooling (Year 7-9) was initiated to meet the increasing needs of the community. In 2013 the Palmerston Christian School Campus saw the expansion to incorporate Year 10 as part of the Northern Territory Christian College. PCS has now grown to over 300 students and has more than 40 dedicated Christian staff, with many modern facilities and a first class educational program, Palmerston Christian School is still an exciting place to be.
As that first vision in 1988 has advanced and exceeded expectations, so the school community will continue to move forward and continue to provide quality Christian education in Palmerston.
