Mrs Riethmuller and I joined other system leaders on Monday, 29 July at the Leaders Forum. Topics covered on the day include: the Plenary Council 2020, System Policies and Projects and future governance of CEWA. Bishop Donald Sproxton announced that as of 2020, the Bishops of WA have decided to make CEWA an incorporated body.
- The Bishops’ decision follows the unanimous recommendation from an independent advisory committee, as well as consultation with Catholic education systems in other Dioceses across Australia.
- The sustainability of the Catholic education system was pivotal to the decision making process, as was the need to ensure that a change in governance would have minimal impact on the operations of Catholic schools.
- This incorporation will ensure that Catholic Education Western Australia continues to operate as a system of schools that meets the needs of our changing educational landscape and provides all students with equitable access to the best learning and formation environments.
