Published Work

‘Can Children learn Science?’ I was part of the team which took part in the 2nd Year of research (1986-7). A joint Glos. & Wilts. LEA venture on the constructivist approach to education. Research published in booklet form January 1988.

In 1993 I was part of a working party in the ACCE seeking to form better guidelines for school and college chaplains. I was also working within my own diocesan chaplaincy team to do the same. The diocesan guidelines were progressing well but the national working party was struggling. I took the diocesan outline to the national group, now associated with the CES, and used the framework to help develop an ACCE document. My work was to define chapters and write up all the content we had prepared. At the 1995 Conference the draft was accepted. It was not yet in a form required for the Bishops’ Conference to adopt it. In 1996 the final version was launched by Cardinal Hume: Chaplaincy, the Change and the Challenge.
