School Workshops & Events

WATAC offers workshops to High School groups on topics such as feminist theology, spirituality, inclusive language, images of God, women’s participation in church and society, feminist spiritual writers and thinkers. Schools can contact the administration officer to book one of the above workshops or to dialogue about other workshop possibilities for students in years 10 to 12.

Students at Inter-Faith Dialogue in NSW Parliament House

WATAC also provides opportunities for senior students to listen to speakers, from other faith traditions as well as their own, speak on a variety of topics, including Indigenous Spirituality. In the past issues explored have been “Women’s Personal Faith Journey”, “Women and Peace” and "Religion & Peace - the challenges and implications for us all". These forums are usually held twice a year at NSW Parliament House and include time for active questioning and dialogue with the speakers. You can read a report on one of our student symposiums.

Due to renovations in the NSW Parliament House theatrette we are unable to hold an Interfaith in November this year. However in 2018 we plan to hold two student Symposiums with the theme Religion and Peace - 'Exploring the distinctive response of religious traditions to the issue of peace.' The first Symposium will be held in the first half of 2018 and we hope to expand the number of members and friends of WATAC who attend our Interfaith Symposium with a late afternoon/early evening event for senior school students as well as members and friends of WATAC. The second 2018 Symposium will be a daytime event in November.

Senior students have the opportunity to attend the Annual WATAC Luncheon at NSW Parliament House where once again they are exposed to a variety of speakers and topics within this beautiful venue.
