"Australian Catholics is a way of introducing topical issues in a non-threatening, non-judgemental way. The Rockhampton Catholic Education Office has provided it for the schools in our Diocese because we believe that it provides schools with stories that are both contemporary and thought provoking. We believe students will be exposed to religious issues in a way that stimulates and challenges them. We recommend Australian Catholics to all our schools as a way of ensuring that topics in religion and contemporary society are considered and discussed. We believe it provides a great stimulus for schools to consider social justice issues." Leesa Jeffcoat, Director Catholic Education, Diocese of Rockhampton
