From the CEO

Welcome to a new year as we partner together in taking the gospel seriously in the business of education. I trust all our schools have had a good start–that new students are experiencing the joy of being in a Christian learning community and that new staff are excited about rethinking their work in the light of the gospel. Shortly I will be asking schools to provide the names and emails of new staff so I can welcome them to the Christian Education National family. ITEC15 is going to be huge. We are excited about coming together for this event–welcoming our international guests; enjoying Melbourne and being encouraged to faithfully engage God’s world with the truth of God’s word.
