I’ve just been sent Millie’s school curriculum and was rather surprised to discover she’ll be learning about “Using a bat. Tactics when attacking and defending.”
I thought we moved out to Bexley to get away from that sort of thing!
Rather more telling is the section on Religious Education, which says they’ll be concentrating on: “Christianity: The Church; services, people who work there, a family not a building. Hinduism: Krisha and Ganesh stories, their beliefs.”
It’s that referral to “their” beliefs which bothers me here. I’m almost sort of mildly tempted to write to the school and ask if the lessons on Christianity shouldn’t refer to their Church and their services.
As an atheist, I wonder if “their beliefs” will be used when talking about mine, too…
