A Voice for Christian Education

Media Release: Queensland Government Deaf to People of Faith

Detailed and genuine concerns expressed by faith leaders, and supported by Christian schools, have been dismissed by the Premier and Queensland Government according to reports in the media today.

A letter from Faith Leaders to the Premier earlier this month, supported by Christian school leaders, expressed concerns about the restriction of fundamental human rights by the draft Anti-Discrimination Bill 2024. The proposals fly in the face of strong community support for Christian and other religious schools employing staff who share their beliefs and parental choice in education.

Vanessa Cheng, Executive Officer of AACS said “At our recent Town Hall event in Brisbane, 800 Christian school parents, teachers and supporters attended, some coming as far away as Chinchilla and Hervey Bay, to show their commitment and support for the future of Christian education in Queensland. The Premier would be wise to listen the voice of our community and ensure our schools can continue to offer genuine choice for parents.”
