CEO of Anglican Board of Education to be Licensed

Archbishop Thabo Makgoba of Cape Town will today license the Revd Roger Cameron, recently-retired head of St. John's College, Johannesburg, as the Chief Executive Officer of the Anglican Board of Education in Southern Africa (ABESA).

"This is a significant event in the life of the Church," said Archbishop Makgoba. "I am exhilarated by the potential of ABESA to reclaim the Church's role in education and thus promote what I call 'the new struggle' to create opportunities for young people in practical ways.

"It is one of my key ambitions to build new, quality Christian schools, easily accessible to all. We also want to galvanise parishioners to be involved and to work with existing independent schools in creating new opportunities for young people."

The licensing will be attended by Bishop Peter Lee, who chairs ABESA, and Bishop Steve Moreo of Johannesburg.
