Duncan: Religious Education again?
Duncan’s school sent home a form today asking us to check if everything’s correct, and everything appears to be so - except under “Religious Instruction” it has “Agreed Syllabus ‘Religion”.
We purposefully did not consent to that, something which I believe violates Victorian law if he has received any special religious instruction. I’m not strongly anti-religious anymore, but even if I were religious I definitely feel as though a public school is not the place for ministry.
I don’t think they’ve done anything about it yet, at least he certainly hasn’t come home telling us any stories. I’ll have to head into the school on monday and sort it out.
I was toying with the idea a while back of leaving him in SRI to see if his bullshit detector is working, but prep is probably too young for that.
