Welcome to the Association for Studies of Religion Website

Welcome to the Association for Studies of Religion. We are a small association providing advocacy and professional learning support for teachers in the delivery of the NESA Stage 6 Courses: Studies of Religion 1 Unit & Studies of Religion 2 Unit.

Each year the Association offers a range of professional learning opportunities including Twilight Conferences and opportunities to engage with religious communities and places of worship. All of these opportunities are subsidised for our members, some of them are exclusive to our members. 

As an association we are affiliated with the Professional Teachers Council (PTC NSW) and the Australian Joint Council of Professional Teaching Associations (APTA), the former having recognised a number of our members with in Outstanding Professional Service Awards in recent years.  Through this affiliation we have provided members with numerous NESA Accredited professional learning opportunities over a number of years. 

Membership is vital to the Association continuing to provide these services to members and is available to individual teachers and schools. For more information please follow the highlighted membership link on this page. 

The Association is also active on social media providing links to a range of resources for teachers and students throughout each school term. These are open to all, not just members, and we encourage you to access both our Facebook and Twitter feeds as a means of sharing ideas, events and resources related to Studies of Religion.

Thank you for visiting our site and for supporting your teacher association.
