AC Classroom: Acknowledging our country’s traditional owners

31 Oct 2016 | Francine Crimmins

Aboriginal people have existed in Australia for over sixty thousand years, making them the oldest surviving people in the world. While this is something we should celebrate, we also must remember the hurt and struggle that many First Nations People continue to face due to the loss of sacred sites and traditional culture. The ‘Acknowledgement of Country’ is one of the ways in which Catholic communities can recognise our relationship with Aboriginal people.


Where every ribbon has a story

31 Oct 2016 | Michael McVeigh

The Royal Commission has provided an opportunity for thousands of survivors of abuse to have their stories heard. Australians have been shocked and moved by the stories that have emerged of abuse in institutions across the country, including many Catholic schools and parishes.

They found eager volunteers that primary school students could identify with, as well as an opportunity to create an enduring relationship between Catholic and State schools. Australian Catholics spoke to Cecilia Zammit, Director for the Confraternity of Christian Doctrine in the Diocese of Parramatta and some student volunteers about the Student Scripture Teacher Program.


Battling the Grudge

17 Aug 2016 | Isobel Kuo

In order for our brave protagonist to defeat the looming beast, the player must be courageous and open up a conversation with the person on the other side of the conflict. As long as both parties are open and generous, this conversation can enable them to express how the other person’s actions have made them feel. In the best possible case, the argument will then dissolve as both people come to understand the other person’s point of view better.


Small seeds lead to big changes

17 Aug 2016 |

Online exclusive: R U OK? Day

17 Aug 2016 | Fr Peter Hosking SJ


Thursday 8 September is R U OK? Day. The occasion reminds us that checking in with friends and family is one of the most important things we can do to help a person who may be dealing with mental health issues. If something does not seem quite right, or we have noticed changes in behaviour, taking the time to reach out and ask the right questions can make a difference.
