When & Where


CEIS provides a one-hour session to groups of participating students each term, scheduled across numerous schools during weeks 6-10.  Sessions occur during learning time in a space designated exclusively for CEIS.  Regular lessons continue in each school for non-participating students.

CEIS occurs in a school when parents request Christian Education for their children.
Parents can request Christian Education through:
– a conversation with their school principal, followed up with an email to the CEIS Coordinator
– the online form below, in conjunction with letting their school principal know.

Once a parent request has been placed the regular process that occurs is:
1. CEIS meets with the school principal to outline the implementation of Christian Education.
2. The school may advise the school board of the request (no decision required as parent requests are a legislated allowance)
3. CEIS information is distributed to the school community (for clarity and equality); other interested parents may also request that
     their children participate.
4. CEIS continues to liaise with the school to establish student groups, dates, allocated space and community information.

ACT Legislation

CEIS supports and serves the ACT Education Act 2004 Section 29 that provides for the teaching of religious education in government schools when requested by parents for their children.

The Religious Education in Schools Policy of the ACT Education and Training Directorate states that the teaching of religious education in government schools will be coordinated in individual schools by the principal, in co-operation with specific religious bodies and parents.

The national Australian Curriculum incorporates the development of ethical understanding for students and addresses the Christian heritage of Australia (www.australiancurriculum.edu.au).
