Formed in 1991 with the objective of providing a high standard of Christian Education in local state high schools, the NCEA now employs Elizabeth Harnwell to work at Hornsby Girls' High School, and Tony Jones to work at Normanhurst Boys' High School. Both are employed on a part-time basis. The NCEA is administered by a Management Committee representing six local churches and supported by eleven churches in the area (these churches are listed with details on the homepage). The annual budget is approximately $90,000.
Elizabeth Harnwell, a well qualified and experienced teacher, was appointed as a part-time SRE Teacher at Hornsby Girls’ High School (HGHS).
I am so thankful to God for the opportunity to start teaching SRE at Hornsby Girls’ High School (HGHS) this year. Although I am only new to the school, I already feel very happy there. The staff have gone out of their way to make sure I feel welcome and the Principal and the Executive have been very supportive.
Tony Jones has a Bachelor of Science and is just finishing a Masters of Divinity. He is a former student of James Ruse Agricultural High School and currently teaches SRE part-time at Marsden High School.
I hope that SRE will be a chance for students to take the opportunity to think about religion and belief, in particular, what they themselves believe and why, and what impact this has on their lives. In doing so, I hope to show how the truth of the Gospel shines brighter than all other beliefs; impacting the way that all of us live both now and into eternity.
