Abstract

Among the outcomes of the events of September 11 has been a flurry of new laws to identify suspect individuals, as well as the creation of policies to promote cultural integration. Communities are involved in a determined struggle to shore up their defence capabilities while simultaneously looking for new ways to communicate with each across cultural divides (Fullilove, 2008). This hydra-headed concern for security and for cross-cultural engagement is a characteristic of the contemporary world. Australian Catholic schools inhabit this cultural terrain. It is causing new questions to be asked about the nature and purpose of the schools and to re-assess the imagery that has sustained the schools in this country for almost two centuries.
