The Advisor to HSACRE confirmed that he had received the Agreed Syllabus Conference from Communications, and that, subject to minor changes and additions, the production of the syllabus had entered its final stages.


The Humanist representative confirmed that he was happy with the logo used, and it was confirmed that the syllabus would be the 2017 version if it was confirmed by the end of the year.


Members of HSACRE were asked to look at the document and respond to the Clerk or Advisor to HSACRE with any comments or corrections that they believed were necessary to the syllabus.
