EdComm Dinner 2019 - A Vision for Education
Date and Time
A Vision for Anglican Education
There has always been a strong connection between faith, educational priorities and decision-making in education. But we live in an age in which teaching is seen as a secular activity and the teacher is meant to separate their personal beliefs from the content of their teaching, or sometimes, even suppress them as they teach the children of other parents. This wasn't how teaching was always seen. In fact, for much of human history, teaching has been seen as a deeply religious activity, that is something guided by beliefs shaped by an understanding of an 'Ultimate Reality'. To that end what might the future of education look like for those coming from a faith-based perspective? Moreover, what could our schools look like and what might be possible as we imagine the future of Anglican Education?

The Anglican Education Commission (Anglican EdComm) exists to advance the Anglican Diocese of Sydney's commitment to promoting biblically-shaped education. It was re-established as a separate entity by the Synod in 2007. Its mandate is to contribute to the transformation of education through pre-schools, Anglican schools, colleges, parishes and other Anglican organisations. Anglican EdComm promotes teaching as a worthy and strategic vocation. It seeks to support Christian Teachers at every stage of their career. Whether a person is considering teaching, an established teacher or a school leader, Anglican EdComm exists to support teachers and help them enrich the lives of students both academically and spiritually. Through mentoring, networking, conducting NESA accredited professional learning and consultancy within schools, it seeks to help teachers and school leaders to implement a biblically-shaped approach to education. It plays an important role in advocacy and representing an Anglican perspective to governments, the education profession and the wider community. It has an interest in enhancing Anglican Religious Education and in promoting scholarly research on biblically-shaped education.
