VIC/TAS New to Christian Schooling Induction Day

VIC/TAS New to Christian Schooling Induction Day

This training seeks to empower staff in Christian schools to embrace their purpose and mission to bring the message of Jesus, through education, to a world in need. We look forward to welcoming members and non-members, who may be new to Christian schooling, to this event.

Event Information

The induction program is ideally suited to teaching staff new to the profession or working in a Christian School for the first time. The event will explore vision, purpose, culture and practice and give some insight as to how this could play out in each school. The afternoon workshop program is designed to bury down into that practice domain through the lens of student formation, the philosophical and theology foundation of curriculum planning, with a Christian worldview and we are delighted to welcome the teaching team from Australians Together who will cover ways to approach Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives in the classroom.

Your Host: Dr. Rob Loe

Rob has been serving as the Executive Officer, VIC/TAS since May 2020. He has a background in teaching, school leadership and research. Rob believes passionately that a Christian school’s ethos cannot be divorced from the outcomes it seeks for its students (which must be more than academic). That ethos should make a deeply positive impact on the day-to-day lived reality of corridors and classrooms. It is the most powerful form of witness from a school. Rob has a national portfolio role that reflects his significant experience and research interests: Organisational Culture and Community Development.

Mark Ryan, EO South Australia, CSA

Mark Ryan has been part of the CSA team since 2019 in the role of Executive Officer, SA. Mark has previous experience in leadership roles at Temple Christian College and, with degrees in both education and theology, held pastoral roles in a number of churches. Mark serves as a Director on the Board of Compass and with such an excellent grasp of biblical literacy, worldview and its application to culture, learning and vocation, is well-placed to lead CSA's national portfolio of Christian Formation.
