Early morning visit from CSA’s Dr Pampuch brings SCEA leaders together

Dr Daniel Pampuch (Chief Executive Officer – Christian Schools Australia (CSA)) made an early morning stop at a Midland cafe to visit SCEA’s leadership team from the Head Office and the SCEA schools on Thursday, 18 April 2024.

With the ongoing debate around religious freedoms now involving faith-based schools and organisations, the necessity to have advocates in the parliamentary debate ensures that CSA is consistently speaking on behalf of more than 170 independent schools nationwide.

SCEA’s 5,000 students and approximately 800 staff form a substantial part of the Western Australian cohort of CSA schools that Dr Pampuch and his team represent in these debates around legislative changes, religious freedoms and the future of independent schools in our country.

“It is possible that independent school enrolments will account for 40% of all school-aged students across Australia this year,” said Dr Pampuch.

In 2023, the enrolment figure was 36% of the nation’s students, with the expectations for 2024 set to be higher than that.

“We are needing to work harder to source our staff and really care for our growing communities.”

Dr Pampuch will visit SCEA’s school in Alkimos, Northshore Christian Grammar School, on Friday, 19 April 2024.
