SRE – It’s a Good Thing!
We believe that it’s good for kids in schools to QUESTION, EXPLORE, DISCOVER the faith of their families and that a well planned Special Religious Education (school scripture) program delivered by trained adults from the local area adds value to public education.
A local primary school principal said recently
“Our aim is to empower our students to become innovative, creative, intellectually curious and socially responsible citizens, who are prepared for and can respond to the demands and opportunities of the 21st century. SRE at our school contributes wonderfully to that ultimate goal.”
We aim to promote the benefits of SRE in the community so that when parents and carers have the option of choosing SRE for their child, they are choosing on the basis of good information.
