SRE and RI Curriculum Info

Investing in the state of our children's future

Christian SRE lessons are prepared from a set curriculum and delivered by an authorised teacher provided by one of your local churches.

The material includes teaching manuals, teaching aids, student activity books, music and other activities that are age and stage appropriate and designed to meet the needs of children in each class.

During the lesson the teaching and learning activities are designed to help engage each child with the Bible and help them understand the basics of the Christian faith.

You are free at any time to talk to your child's SRE teacher about the content of the lesson or to view the curriculum.
