One Response to Abolish discrimination by special religious instruction

    I just posted this on my FB…and was directed to you, by a very intelligent friend. : )

    Is it just me, or are other parents surprised that Christianity is taught in Prep?…in a state school. Not “religious instruction”, as its called, because that would be cool if the kids learnt all about lots of different religion. But, it’s just the straight out Christian religion…My girl,and some others sit out, and aren’t provided with any learning activities. just a white board and textas…I’m not cool with this

    So as you can see, I’m unhappy about this. Because we were given a choice about whether or not our child would be doing RI, we said no, not realising that this is setting up a “us” and “them” mentality in the class room. Which was never out intention when we made that choice. And by the way, when did it become a subject for Preps!? It is my choice to explain about what religion is to my child, not a teachers.
    Thanks for hearing me.
