Be it at Synod or any other gathering of Anglican Christians, you don't have to talk for too long before someone is discussing the worth of our Anglican Schools, often adding comments about the faith value of those institutions.
A wonderful sign that things are looking up for our schools is this new website, A Place for Mission.
Drawing on the experts who work in and think deeply about schools with a faith foundation, this website demonstrates that this community is engaging deeply in every aspect of what our schools do and how they can continue to be a vital part of the mission of the church.
They, along with many other promising initiatives our Schools Office is developing, show that our schools are hotbeds of new ideas and advanced thinking.
Maybe now is the time to wonder what we can learn from them?
