Don't fix an old HSC relic, let's get a new one

The changes to the HSC announced this week represent another wasted opportunity to bring schooling into the 21st century. Our model for assessing learning in today’s world needs more than updates, patches and fix-ups - it needs to be entirely transformed.  

Innovative support for our passionate principals

The role of Principal is a challenging job and the Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta (CEDP) is boosting its support through innovative programs that aim to improve the wellbeing and safety of our school leaders.

Reach out to those most in need

The Most Reverend Vincent Long Van Nguyen, Bishop of Parramatta said that school leaders and communities must move beyond the comfort zone and reach out to the margins.
