It is an enormous privilege to teach Special Religious Education (SRE aka Scripture) in a public school. As an SRE Provider the Baptist Union of NSW (aka Baptist Churches/Baptist Association) by the New South Wales (NSW) Department of Education, we give high priority to this opportunity and therefore always endeavour to add value to public education, support spiritual development and build community through all that we do around SRE.
