Previous Issues

Independence has been published for over 40 years. It originated as the journal of the Headmasters Conference of Independent Schools of Australia (HMC). When HMC joined with the Association of Heads of Independent Girls’ Schools of Australia (AHIGSA) to form AHISA in 1985, Independence was retained as the flagship publication of the new association.

The current and previous issues of Independence, commencing with the first issue of 2006, are now able to be viewed and searched within our digital archive.
