Provincial Connections

Our schools come from all three Tikanga of our Anglican Province and can draw on the skills, knowledge and support of many people and organisations within it.

From 2019 the Royal Commission into Abuse in Care will be looking into what happened to children, young people and vulnerable adults while in state or faith-based care. The Anglican Church was instrumental in getting the Commission to extend its scope to cover faith-based institutions, because we believe that if abuse has occurred there it needs to be brought to light. We are therefore doing all we can to support the process in the hope that some healing can come to those whose trust, mind or body were abused. Contact details for those wishing to make a submission are available on the website. Draft recommendations for protocols and procedures can be provided on request by the Anglican Schools' Office. A brief information sheet which may be helpful can be found at https://tinyurl.com/rok76oa .

“Resourced” website for youth resources and for Anglican Youth Ministries in NZ. Many of the creative ideas on this site are easily adapted for classroom or chapel use, and it would be a great site to delve into when preparing for a retreat or school camp. Lorna, the National Youth Co-ordinator, would love to deepen connections with our schools.

Bishopdale College

http://www.bishopdale.ac.nz/

Bishopdale is an Anglican theological college based in the Diocese of Nelson. They offer internships for young adults. An internship is "like an apprenticeship in Christian ministry. Mentored internships fit well with the way that Jesus grew His disciples - learning skills, watching and practising, being encouraged and corrected, and growing into a whole new realm of service. Bishopdale internships, which take place in partnership with Laidlaw College, provide an excellent and rewarding way to explore ministry further, gain experience and training, all within an NZQA accredited framework."
