School Scripture – It’s a good thing
Many would indeed agree that School Scripture (SRE) – is a good thing! Hunter Christian SRE are working on a fresh, positive media campaign to get the word out to parents about the benefits of SRE to kids.
Educating kids in the Christian faith has many benefits, but unfortunately parents aren’t hearing about these. Hunter SRE has set up a Facebook page to encourage SRE teachers, and to share positive stories about SRE for parents. There will also be radio ads on both Christian and secular radio stations, billboards and signs, and an art activity at Mattara Festival.
The estimated cost is $20,000. We are looking for people to donate and also for Christian advocates eg school teachers, principals, politicians, sportspeople, medical professionals, police officers who have some standing the community who would be willing to be quoted in support of Scripture (or SRE).
In October we are asking churches and public schools to use their noticeboards to support SRE eg with the slogan “School Scripture (SRE) – it’s a good thing!”.
