Dear Colleagues,

Our Focus Groups begin meeting today to support the writing of the Position Paper. We appreciate the contributions being made by the clergy, principals, and representatives from parents and religious institutes who are supporting us in this work. The Position Paper will be available for consultation and feedback once it has been finalised.

Delegated Canonical Administrators and Chairs of Boards

Our next round of stakeholder engagement will be with Delegated Canonical Administrators (DCAs) and the Chairs of School Boards. We are currently organising the session with DCAs, and would be grateful if this update could be forwarded to the Chair of each School Board so we can arrange the Board Chair session with them.

Board Chair contact details

A contact detail form for Chairs of Boards is available at: Once we have sufficient numbers, we will arrange for a meeting of Chairs of Boards to engage them in the consultation and change process.

The Governance website provides information and is a site of input and dialogue, which enables appropriate and current communication so necessary for the success of this process. As always, if you wish to provide additional feedback, please fill out a contact form on the site, or email

The Steering Committee
