Let's get REAL

The Religious Education Association of Lismore (REAL) formed in 1989 with the first Special Religious Education (SRE) Teacher commencing at Lismore High School, term 1, 1990. It was not long before SRE Teachers were also positioned in Kadina and Richmond River High schools. REAL’s SRE Teachers currently exercise this ministry to secondary students by providing class room teaching and pastoral care each week in all three Lismore High Schools. This important ministry is made possible by generous contributions of people from the local churches and community.
