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.
Call for meeting with Premier by Chairs of peak education bodies
3 October 2012
Dear Mr O'Farrell
We, the under-signed, Chair the peak bodies which collectively represent 100% of the secondary school-aged children of NSW and their parents. We wish to express our strong opposition to the NSW State Government's announced funding cuts to the essential service of education. The Gonski review clearly identified a need to invest in education by $6.5 billion in today's terms to attain and maintain a competitive international position. Under your savage cuts NSW state education will be doubly underfunded. We urgently seek a meeting with yourself and Minister Piccoli.Yours faithfully
DR JOHN COLLIER
