Associated Christian Schools has been established since the end of 2009, based on four Foundation Pillars: A Friendship of Christian Believers Engaged in Education, Christian Thinking for a Better World, Building Christian Educational Communities and Christian Influence. As part of establishing and developing the pillar of Christian Influence, our strategic plan has included the development of strategic relationships at a national level.

  We have much pleasure in announcing that, by mutual agreement between the respective boards, Associated Christian Schools (a group of 29 QLD schools representing 19,500 students), have become a group member of the Australian Association of Christian Schools. It is delightful to be working together again, building on a relationship that previously existed when ACS member schools were a part of AACS. In addition to the membership of ACS, other members of this national advocacy group comprise: 68 members of Christian Educational National (CEN), 8 members of Swan Christian Education Association (SCEA), 6 St Philip’s Campuses and 10 non-aligned member schools.

 AACS has existed for over twenty five years and has developed strong ties with successive federal governments and their officers in building a better understanding of the needs of Christian schools. Through co-operative representation with other peak bodies and direct advocacy on behalf of member schools, AACS has been able to speak into the policy development and administrative processes across the length and breadth of school related issues.

As we face a very challenging time ahead in the history of non-government schooling, we look forward to working in fellowship together around the issues that go to sustaining a credible and robust future for Christ-centred schooling.

The Australian Government has announced details regarding the project to consolidate Commonwealth anti‑discrimination laws into a single Act.  The Attorney-General, the Hon Nicola Roxon MP and the Minister for Finance and Deregulation, Senator the Hon Penny Wong, have released exposure draft legislation for the Human Rights and Anti‑Discrimination Bill 2012.

The Bill consolidates the 5 existing Commonwealth anti-discrimination acts into a single comprehensive law. The Bill was drafted following these key principles:

  • Lift differing levels of protections to the highest current standard, to resolve gaps and inconsistencies without diminishing protections.
  • Clearer and more efficient laws provide greater flexibility in their operation, with no substantial change in practical outcome.
  • Enhance protections where the benefits outweigh any regulatory impact.
  • Voluntary measures that business can take to assist their understanding of obligations and reduce occurrences of discrimination.
  • A streamlined complaints process, to make it more efficient to resolve disputes that do arise.

Further information on the consolidation project and the public consultation process will be placed on the website at as it becomes available. Attached is  the exposure draft Bill and explanatory material, as well as a short fact sheet and the Ministers’ media release.

 Is the effect of the Christian church on Society always benign?


Why is telling and acting on the truth so difficult? Four Character Test Traits in Truth-telling, from“Telling Truth to Kings” by Reinhold Schneider, each of which present a genuine text of character are: the wisdom and willingness to see the truth; the courage to speak the truth; the humility and honesty of mind to hear the truth; and finally, the will to act on the truth.

Which of the steps do you think are most challenging?
