Francis Sullivan CEO of the Truth, Justice and Healing Council [above with Phil Lewis] met with the CaSPA Board on Nov 14th.
With the impending release of the report of the Royal Commission into Institutional Sexual Abuse due in mid December, the CaSPA Board is looking at possible consequences of the release of this report. It is anticipated that there will be significant implications for Catholic Education - and for the Church more broadly - contained in the recommendations of the Royal Commission Report.
At the meeting with Francis Sullivan, CaSPA Directors were able to discuss a range of these consequences, particularly in the area of possible Governance models for Catholis Secondary Schools.
It was also hoped that the Church would take the opportunity to explore some of these important issues at the planned Plenary Council which is due to be held in 2020. CaSPA will look to work with other key Catholic Education stakeholders to provide input into the key themes that will be discussed during this Council.
