About the publishers

Australian Christian College

The ACC Group is a network of thirteen Christian Schools in five states. Since our founding days, ACC has been committed to transforming young people spiritually, academically, socially and physically for lives of significance and service. We encourage students to act compassionately and graciously yet think deeply and biblically.


Koorong provides a wide range of Christian resources, at great prices, to help people in their walk with Jesus Christ. Owned by Bible Society Australia since 2015, Koorong operates online and in 14 stores across Australia. Koorong remains committed to spreading God’s Word and building up the body of Christ.


Is this really free?

100% free, no strings attached. Because ACC is committed to helping students thrive, we make these kinds of helpful resources freely available.

My child doesn’t attend Australian Christian College, is this an issue?

Not at all. You’re welcome to benefit from the contents of this guide without obligation. Obviously, we’d appreciate it if you kept ACC in mind if you’re ever looking for a school in the future.

I’m not a Christian, will the guide still be relevant to me?

ACC and Koorong are Christian organisations that are committed to providing meaningful reading experiences for all families. The interpretation and communication of meaning is innately human which means the strategies contained in this guide are widely applicable regardless of your worldview.

How long will it take me to read this guide?

Based on average reading speed it should take you 20ish minutes to read it cover to cover. However, you might want to read only the introduction and the sections that coincide with the ages of your children.

Once you have my details, will you SPAM me?

Absolutely not! We dislike SPAM as much as you do. We promise to only email you information relevant to parents.
