Free, compulsory, and secular

 

Secular Public Education Limited was established in July 2015 as an Australian not-for-profit company limited by guarantee, and is registered as a charity with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission. In achieving our primary charitable purpose, that of promoting and protecting the human right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion or belief, we provide services including the following:

  • Advocacy support – offering inclusive advocacy services and providing support to individuals
  • Information – providing information to individuals, schools and the broader community
  • Education – providing education to individuals, community organisations and interested community members
  • Establishing – a P-12 school curriculum course: Faith, Philosophy, and Fable – a history of human contemplation

Since the commencement of the 2016 school year we have received substantial numbers of requests from parents and caregivers for advice and assistance regarding their rights in relation to religious instruction and chaplaincy arrangements at their respective public schools. When requested, we directly and discreetly advocate on behalf of individual parents and caregivers on a case-by-case basis. Since 2006, via informal parent groups and established secularist organisations, various Secular Public Education directors and associates have been successfully providing the above services to many hundreds of parents, caregivers, concerned citizens and public school students in every Australian state and territory. Please feel free to contact us regarding any concerns related to the matters described above. You will receive a prompt response. Should your need for advice be urgent, please phone 0478 030 705. For regular information and news updates, please follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

As of April 2016, We are proud to announce that the development of Faith, Philosophy, and Fable – a history of human contemplation has commenced. Supported by exciting and engaging modular and P-12 graded multimedia resources and materials, FP&F will explore human contemplation from the earliest known manifestations some 300,000 years ago. From Middle Paleolithic burial rites and rituals through the anthropomorphic ‘Lion Man’ figurine of c. 38,000 BCE, to the Sumerian deities of the 3rd millennium BCE, Mesopotamian mythology, and the development of eastern and western philosophies, Faith, Philosophy, and Fable – a history of human contemplation will comprehensively observe the astonishing history of human thought—the how, when, where, and why.
