Christian schools have developed a variety of management structures to support their vision for Christ-centred education. This course gives participants the opportunity to examine these structures critically in the light of:
- the school’s and their own educational focus and values
- the need to nurture Christian community
- the need to sustain a dynamic vision for Christian schooling.
