Special Religious Education (SRE) has been a part of schooling in NSW since 1880 and is an integral part of our culture and history. SRE is distinct from General Religious Education, which forms part of the HSIE curriculum. SRE is time set aside in the school week for approved SRE providers, often local churches, to enter their local government schools and teach about their distinctive beliefs and practices.
Generate SRE is a program that supports local communities and churches to make Christian SRE available in Government High Schools across NSW.
Christian SRE is valuable for families who would like their children to understand Christian beliefs and engage with a valuable part of our Australian heritage. The impact of the Christian worldview can be seen in politics, education, healthcare, welfare and culture. Christian SRE gives students the opportunity to think critically, and engage with broader questions of worldview, values and identity.
