Doors Open Wide for RI … Here’s how to make RI so awesome that principles are crying out for it
About Raelene …
Over 10 years ago and with the help of her husband Kirk, their Church and her experience in teaching and business, Raelene set up a system enabling paid RI teachers to go where there were no volunteers and incorporate over 20 schools with Religious Instruction from grade 1-6 and also some High Schools.
She now liaises, coordinates and guides 9 paid staff who cover over 3000 children every week with Religious Instruction. The RI Gift fund aims to deliver, professional, relevant and extremely engaging Religious Instructors to schools. Every year Principals keep inviting them back. Some schools have nearly 100% attendance for Religious Instruction.
Raelene also assisted other areas in Queensland to set up similar tax-deductible funds in Bribie Island, Caboulture, Gympie and Ipswich. She is also the Vice President of the Religious Instruction Reference group who meet quarterly with Education Queensland, Instructors and Church representatives. She was one of the founding representatives of the CRI Network team and continues to collaborate with this team on many current and ongoing Religious Instruction policies.
She has broad experience in providing employment and developing training programs for many gifted and talented Religious instructors. Raelene has held key positions with Education Queensland as an Early Childhood Teacher and after completing her Masters of Education is currently working as a Guidance Counsellor in State High and Primary Schools.
Raelene is passionate about providing excellent quality Religious Instruction to our future generation and collaborating with Churches, Schools, Families and Instructors to make this possible.
