NSW Teachers Federation’s Henry Rajendra shares an inspiring message for secularism

The first Secularism Australia Conference, coming up in December, would not be possible without the support of the New South Wales Teachers Federation.

The teachers federation – a passionate advocate for secular public education – is providing its Conference Centre in Surry Hills, Sydney, as the venue for the one-day conference.

On our social media channels, Henry Rajendra, Acting President of the teachers federation, has shared an inspiring message ahead of the conference.

“A secular Australia symbolises belonging in which all Australians of all backgrounds – of all faiths and those with no faith at all – feel valued and included, celebrated and loved. To achieve this, we need a clear separation of religion from government and its institutions, including our public education system,” he says.

Education will be a key topic of discussion at the conference on Saturday 2 December 2023, with speakers and panellists set to tackle issues including religious instruction in state schools, religious chaplaincy, and funding of public schools.
