Grafton Anglican Schools Commission

The Anglican Diocese of Grafton has five Anglican schools created by the Diocese under the Anglican Church of Australia (Bodies Corporate) Act 1938 (NSW). Each of those schools are self managing and operating under a similar constitution with a School Council. The school constitutions are created as an ordinance of the Diocese of Grafton.

The Grafton Anglican Schools Commission was established under a Diocese of Grafton Ordinance to assist the Diocese by providing oversight of the five Anglican schools. The Commission monitors school performance and sets policies and procedures where they are required for the Diocesan oversight or provide a useful commonality among the Anglican schools. The Commission also fosters cooperation between schools.

Diocesan Mission and Ministry Overview

Values

Christ-likeness
God’s grace revealed in Jesus Christ shapes and moulds our lives.

Discernment
We continually seek to discern God’s revealing to be faithful in who we are and what we do.

Openness
We are open to change and to the development of innovative and responsive models of mission and ministry for our contemporary Australian context.

Collaboration
We work in collaborative partnerships with others to achieve our goals.

Distinctiveness
We honour the rich diversity of our Anglican heritage and culture.

Accountability
We practise responsible and transparent stewardship of all that is entrusted in our care.

We Believe…

The essence of the Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit is holiness and love expressed through mutual giving and receiving.

The Divine community is the model for Christians. It is not a closed community, but one-sided, reaching out and embracing. We are called to be the human community of God in the world, invited to mirror the divine giving and receiving action.
