    We were at a school function last thursday and there was a spiritual reading and pray and it is a mixed school (different faiths) and I wondered how the other non christian folk felt about the prayer part but I guess if you not running down each others faith and you praying for guidence or something then everyone can relate to it and no one should be offended.

    So maybe the school principle is allowed to invite religious speakers at his/her discretion?
    I'm sure they are welcome to, provided attendance is not compulsory and that they also invite preachers from all other religions on the same terms.

    Not acceptable under the current school policy.

    But nothing will happen unless it is reported.

    If it is something where attendance is mandatory, then no. And if these speakers are always from the same religion, then no too. By that I mean I'd object.

    Depends whether every time they do it is consistently from one mythology.
