Christian Studies Leaders


Each school in the LESER region is to appoint a Christian Studies Leader (CSL) who is the key contact person for Christian Studies in the school.  “The CSL is responsible to and reports to the principal on all matters relating to Christian Studies.” (p 55 CSCF)


Christian Studies Leaders, supported by the regional Education Officer – Christian Studies, will work with their principal and teachers to develop a whole-school plan that maps the strands, key ideas and outcomes covered within each Band of the CSCF.


The role statement provided below should serve as a starting point for schools to develop their own role statement for their Christian Studies Leader.  Individual role statements should reflect the specific context and nature of each educational site.
