Our Quest for Hope – The Gift of Faith is a discussion paper is intended for families and schools in support of the journey of faith. It has been prepared for the National Catholic Education Commission by the Faith Formation and Religious Education standing committee with the support of representatives from Catholic School Parents Australia.
This resource is offered as an invitation for school communities to consider how they come together to enhance the partnership between schools and families; as together with the parish, they support children and young people in exploring their faith. It is intended to be useful in the evaluation of current practice and the discovery of imaginative responses and new opportunities for school communities.
The paper endeavours to support and complement material produced at a local level and honours the partnership with families as first educators.
