About Christian SRI

Is your child benefitting from SRI? Christian SRI is a 30-minute session during lunchtime, before or after school, providing content and activities that help students make positive life choices. SRI support a child's overall wellbeing including their spiritual development, so important for life and learning.

SRI supports students spiritual wellbeing needs by giving children the opportunity to:
Learn how to connect with others in our multifaith society
Explore the Christian faith in a safe and supportive environment
Develop resilience, empathy, compassion and kindness for themselves and others through the stories and beliefs of the Christian faith.
Develop language and concepts to express and understand their spiritual experiences, from a Christian perspective.
Nurture their desire to make a difference in the world.
Develop meaning, purpose and hope, not based on success, experience or achievement, but based on something external to themselves.

A grade 3 student who recently commenced SRI said to me, “Tuesday is my favourite day because I have SRI."

SRI is good for students. SRI helps build communities that are connected, supported and whole.

We no longer supply resources to schools outside Victoria.
