Anglican Schools Australia
It is a great pleasure to welcome you to the Anglican Schools Australia (ASA) website. We hope this resource, and its links to other sources, will provide Anglican school leaders, chaplains, senior staff and board members with information and advice that enables them to successfully lead and manage their schools. We hope you will use this website as a means of communicating with colleagues at other Anglican schools as well as with ASA staff.
The organising committee for our Sydney Conference has chosen Deep Peace as the theme.
ASA encourages principals, chaplains, senior staff, members of school councils and clergy to attend the conference in August.

ASA launched its second strategic plan, Strategic Plan 2020, in August 2016. This plan which grew out of the achievements of our first strategic plan will guide the network's development over the next four years.
The following five key priorities form the basis of our plan:
In addition, the ASA is looking to build alliances with Anglican agencies; to encourage New Zealand Anglican schools to join our network; and to supporting the work of Anglican schools as faith-inspired communities of learning.

To enhance our online presence and immediacy of contact with our members, ASA launched its Facebook Page, 'Anglican Schools Australia', in mid-2016 to profile the network on social media. Within days more than 100 people had viewed the page and it continues to gain traction. We encourage members to visit the site, like it and post articles about your schools.

Our chaplains also established a closed Facebook Page, 'ASA Chaplains', as a way of keeping in touch, sharing ideas and resources, and supporting one another. The page, which has 70 members, was initially seen as a forum for discussing ideas in preparation for the Chaplains' Networking Day at the Adelaide Conference. It is fast becoming the key means by which chaplains keep in contact with one another.
