We are looking forward to the CEN National Conference and AGM this weekend in Canberra. Principals and parents from school associations from all around Australia will be gathering to encourage each other in the pursuit of Christian education in each school context, listen to Dr Rod Thompson on the topic of ‘grow’ in the context of Christian education and to participate in a series of workshops dealing with issues relevant to Christian schooling. We will also be holding the CEN Annual General Meeting during this time. For those of you coming, we look forward to seeing you there.

These images have then gone on to form the basis of promotional material that CEN has produced over the last few years – websites, brochures, slideshows and our journals. These images are much better than having to resort to stock images.

To this end the brochure is …
