A Celebration of Choice (A fifty year old story)


There's a wonderful story about how Christian school's and others in the non-government sector came to be seen as offering helpful choice to Australian parents. It involved political maneuvering leading up to the 1967 Victorian election (April 29th is the 50th anniversary) but great good has come from it. That milestone represents 50 years since governments around Australia started financially supporting the cost of students attending non-government schools.

Come along, hear the story, affirm the worth of providing parents with choice, and celebrate the contribution that Christian schools make to the good of Australian society.
