The ability of teachers to engage and develop the faith journey of students is seen as a central endeavour in faith-based schools. Much has been written in the literature regarding approaches that may be effective in facilitating this process. This study analysed qualitative data collected from 368 Year 5–12 students from one faith-based school in Australia. Students reported on the key areas they believe assist in developing their faith, in addition to aspects they believe could be improved in this regard. A significant difference was found between the attitudes of those who reported not having a faith background and those who did. This chapter builds onto findings reported in the previous chapter.
