Why is this so?
Sadly, Toowoomba still do not have enough volunteer teachers from the local churches to teach all the classes in our state primary schools.
Queensland legislation enables all children in state schools to be taught about their religion. Christians are welcome to teach children enrolled in Christian RI about their faith.
The approved curriculum provides every teacher with Bible-based, age-appropriate material, with which to share the good news of God’s love and purposes.
Why not talk to one of your church leaders about the needs and opportunities in your area?
Maybe assist someone already teaching, see what it’s like, and help out in the classroom?
You could choose a school and RI teacher and support them each week by praying.
How about helping with child-minding, transport, and resources to allow someone else to teach RI?
