NCEC meet with CaSPA and other Key Stakeholders

NCEC meet with CaSPA and other Key Stakeholders

Above l.to r.: Andrew Watson, CaSPA; Mark Mowbray, ACCPA; Christian Zahra, NCEC; John O'Brien, CSPA; Frank FitzGerald, CaSPA; Tony O'Byrne, CSPA; Carmel Nash, CSPA

An important meeting was held on August 9th at the National Headquarters of the Catholic School Parents Association [CSPA]. It was the first opportunity since the passing of the Gonski 2.0 legislation that key stakeholders:

  • NCEC
  • Catholic Secondary Principals
  • Catholic Primary Principals
  • Catholic School Parents

were able to meet as a group and not only consider the possible consequences of the new funding proposal, but also to reflect on how our sector managed during the announcement and subsequent finalisation of the proposal by Senator Birmingham.

The meeting was also an opportunity to meet the new National Director of NCEC - Christian Zahra. Christian provided us with background on his own experience in government and leadership of communtiy organisations, but also his reflection on his first few months in his new role. It would be fair to say that in this short period of time there have been more than a fair share of challenges...

Other items of discussion included the opportunity to provide feed back to the government on the recent Discussion Paper on Remote Schooling.  This has been an important topic of conversation at recent CaSPA Board meetings.  A copy of the Paper by Prof Halsey can be found here. CaSPA would welcome feedback on this important issue to admin@caspa.edu.au no later than August 19, so we can then forward our submission to be included in the feedack that NCEC is preparing on behalf of our sector.

CaSPA values the opporutnity to meet with these other key stakeholders in Catholic Education and looks forward to future meetings to promote the importance of our work for the staff and families of Catholic Schools across Australia.
