Separation of Church and State Schools – Time For Reform In Queensland?

Please consider attending the 13-14 October 2012 Humanist Society of Queensland conference: Separation of Church and State Schools – time for reform in Queensland?

This event will possibly be the most important and constructive of its kind to have been staged in Queensland.

The keynote address will be provided by Prof Marion Maddox, Director - Centre for Research on Social Inclusion, Macquarie University, NSW.

Mr Greg Purches, Deputy General Secretary of the Queensland Teachers’ Union will be among the seven prominent speakers at the event. The presence of Mr Purches will provide an excellent opportunity for concerned Queensland parents, citizens and teachers to directly relate any concerns, experiences and anecdotes to the QTU.

The same personal communication access will also apply to ACSSO President Mr Peter Garrigan who will also be speaking at the event. ACSSO—the Australian Council of State School Organisations—is the peak national organisation representing the interests of the parents, families and school communities of more than two million children attending government schools throughout Australia. ACSSO’s formal structure currently comprises six State and Territory peak government school organisations and their membership networks.
