Editorial by Graeme Perry
“As educators, let’s seize the opportunity to engage with expansive views, listen if ‘rocks cry out’, and feel the warmth of the Son. Avoid drawing down the blinds to focus only on the comfortable dimness of personal interests and limited awareness. Value vision. Always choose the window seat.”

Engaging with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Students, Families, and Communities by Francis Bobongie-Harris
“The following guidelines are based on experience when working closely with and assisting staff at Carlisle Adventist Christian College Early Learning Centre who were exploring ways to connect with Traditional Owners and the broader Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.”

Research from the Inside: One Teacher’s Research Journey within a School Setting by Vladka Henley
“In a secular society such as Australia, why are more and more parents sending their children to faith-based schools? This question led me to pursue PhD research exploring the reasons why parents choose faith-based schools. As I began my research I was confronted with unexpected complexities of researching my own setting. Researching one’s own professional context or occupational setting is known as insider research and this type of research is becoming increasingly common, especially in the field of Education. This paper explores some of the experiences I encountered as an insider researcher, and I present typical advantages and challenges associated with insider research.”

Growing Wellbeing by Peter Beamish
“As schools are looking to offer post-COVID education they need to recognise students at risk and help those who are struggling with their mental health and consequent low levels of personal wellbeing in a very important way.”

A Journey of Cultural Change by Garth Reid, Haley Whitfield, and Greg Mattiske
“This article describes collaborative autoethnographic reflections on the meaning of our decade-long journey as a school community towards reconciliation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. This has resulted in a heartening cultural change driven by the school’s strong, faith-based commitment to reconciliation and the desire to make an incredibly complex issue accessible for children and young people.”
