Professional Learning Day

The NSW Secondary Principals' Council is disappointed by the Murdoch Press in distracting public discourse regarding the focus of the film Gayby Baby. The film explores narratives around young people with same sex parents. The media attack facilitated ill-informed discussion in the public domain.
This highly acclaimed film shares the stories of children raised in same-sex families. Public education values embrace inclusion and diversity.
As educators we have a responsibility and pride in working with students to view the world through an understanding of diversity, respect, value and inclusivity. NSW schools accept and embrace the wider community in its entirety. We will progressively promote the acceptance of diversity within our school communities.
A Dark Day for Public Education in NSW
Media release - 12.9.12
In responding to the proposed funding cut by the NSW Government, Lila Mularczyk, President of the NSW Secondary Principals' Council (SPC) said that the provision of education to its young people is among the highest obligations any government has. As such, she said: "it should also be among its highest priorities for budgetary allocation and one of the 'hills to die on' when considering whether to give attention to matters of notional budget deficits or credit rating agencies." Given that Australia is one of the lowest-taxing nations in the OECD in comparison to its GDP, we have to deplore any move to cut or redirect money from education.
