My little girl has started in prep at our local primary school this year. She absolutely loves it and is soaking up all the things they are teaching her like a sponge. She is reading really well and starting doing maths and Indonesian and all sorts of things. It is a really great school with a lovely community but today on the way home from school after I picked her up she asked me if we could get a Bible! They are teaching her about God and Jesus in religious education. We are not religious, although I did go to a Christian school myself, but I was amazed that they are teaching them religion so early and with no scientific balance! I like some of the values instilled by religion, but I do not like that they teach Creationism with no context or other views. I also think it is very young for a state school to be teaching such things!
