Christian Education In Schools (CEIS) is an opportunity for students to seek, question and explore Christian faith and values, as outlined through the people and events recorded in the Bible.

Christian Education sessions are an optional part of a holistic education process and in no way demand beliefs, decisions or church attendance.
CEIS provides a one-hour session each term, scheduled across schools during weeks 7-10.
Each year the four term sessions are connected for consistency and student understanding. For extra details about the four sessions read our 4-session model page.
- Term 1 Easter Extravaganza: exploring who Jesus is & what this world-wide festival means
- Term 2 Beyond You: wondering about ourselves, others & God; loving & accepting all
- Term 3 Bible Bonanza: discovering the one big story of the world’s biggest selling book; digging deeper into some details
- Term 4 Christmas Celebrations: contemplating the traditional events of Christmas as part of a bigger plan for humanity
Over four years CEIS offers a range of approaches to these annual themes, such as creative inquiries and thinking journeys. Students of all ages are engaged through a range of interactive resources, games, activities, challenges and reflections. Questions are encouraged and any individual responses respected.
Each term a session overview is available for schools and families.
The ACT Education and Training Directorate endorses CEIS as a valued service provider in local schools. CEIS sessions apply modern pedagogy, incorporate ‘multiple intelligences’ and offer activities based on a range of learning styles.
