    Default How often does your child's/children's school have SRI classes?

    DS's school (primary state school) they are held once a term. Is that the norm?

    (DS does not attend, we do the opt out - I'm just curious as I thought most schools it was more regular than once a term.)

    I think it's Special religious instruction and in schools I have been to it was always weekly or fortnightly. Strange it's only once a term.

    Half an hour per week.

    We're in Victoria and just got new consent forms due to a new Ministerial Directive, which states that classes "must be no longer than 30 minutes a week".

    We opt-out too, so my kids have a 30 minutes session of "free time on the iPad" per week.

    Ours are one 45 min per week. We opt out too, i'd rather the time be used on something he is interested in learning....he's not interested in the religion our public school offers.

    Thanks for the responses.
    I thought it was weekly at DS's school (he's not very forthcoming with information) but I have since found out that it's only once a term. I was just wondering if that was standard in other school.

    Weekly at a public school. My kids don't go but the school enjoy forcing religious rubbish down there throats each morning through their morning prayer. It's incredibly infuriating!

    I just dont understand this. Not even a tiny bit.

    There are a LOT of religious based schools (my daughter attends one). If you want your children to learn about religion and have rligious based instruction ... you would send them to one of those. Or take them to church.

    Public schools should not have religious based instruction.

    Our school has half an hour a week. We opt out. It simply shouldn't be taught at all in a public school.
