The North-East region

We were pleased to welcome a new member, Caroline, to our NE group.
We discussed issues around syllabus development in line with current national conversations. We are in the process of welcoming back long-standing friends of AREIAC which prompted discussion about the categories of membership and possible changes to the constitution.
We started a discussion about the recent 'Hinduism in Schools' report, this is likely to continue with invited members of the Hindu community at a future meeting.
There are plans to hold a joint meeting with the Transpennine group in the near future.
