Recent comments about this course from participants:

  • My most valuable takeaway has been the clear definition of a Christian school, the centrality of Christ to the teaching /learning experience. This definition was sharply drawn out for me, and is something that is in focus as my next major task.
     
  • Being able to interact with like minded people in different Christian Schools helped me to appreciate and learn from what others are doing. I was also able to critically look at my own schools mission statement. This course helped me to critically study all the activities we offer and to put them down in writing and see how they all work together in developing a Christ centred child.
     
  • Course materials broadened my perspective of Christian education. Participating in discussion forums helped me to learn from others and for me to share my experiences. Final peer assessment helped me to critically look at my school’s mission statement and to think of ways to improve it to become more central in equipping students to love and serve God. Mission statements from different schools helped me to appreciate our unity in diversity in Christian education.
