Have you ever struggled to explain a Biblical concept to a student, or integrate a Bible story into a lesson plan?

If so, you're not alone. Identifying this as a need at Christian Schools in Western Australia, Swan Christian Education Association developed the Biblical Foundations Curriculum.

The resource is free for classroom use and includes links to interactive content, videos, and more through this website.

Course Rationale

God has a purpose for our lives.  Over the three years from 2011 – 2014 God  called more than 50 teachers from 7 Christian schools of the Swan Christian Education Association (SCEA) to combine our efforts to develop the SCEA Biblical Foundations Curriculum Framework. 

The purpose of the framework is to enable rigorous, consistent, sequential, age-appropriate teaching of the Bible in our schools from K-12.  It builds on the best practice in our schools, nationally and internationally , whilst also encouraging us all to aspire to excellence in Biblical teaching.

The Bible as foundation is central to our understanding of Christian Education.  God’s word underpins our teaching right across the curriculum, leading to the holistic integration of a Christian Worldview/Biblical concepts into all subject areas. But Worldview teaching is not enough on its own. We also need to teach the Bible itself as a core text.
