Students

For those studying in state schools of the state of New South wales, we provide voluntary teachers to state schools to impart SRE (Special religious education) on Hinduism to students in years 8, 9 and 10.

We provide free online courses on Hinduism. Interested students can study at their own home at their own pace and upon passing objective type quiz, they can get a certificate of having completed the course. You can take up the courses by clicking here.
