Baha'i Education in State Schools in Australia:
The classes assist children to develop their spiritual nature, complementing the material and physical education provided by schools. Based on the teachings of Baha'u'llah, the classes emphasise the development of spiritual attributes or virtues and attempt to foster in students the knowledge, skills, understandings and values required to be world citizens. Students are encouraged to embrace the oneness of humankind in all its diversity.

"Religion should be the means of good fellowship and love.
It must upraise the standard of harmony and solidarity.
If religion is conducive to hatred and enmity,
its existence is harmful to the welfare of the community.

بقلم الشاعرة الليبية ردينة الفيلا
انتزع مني بطاقتي الشخصية
ليتأكد أني عربية
وبدأ يفتش حقيبتي وكأني أحمل
وقف يتأملني بصمت ... سمراء وملامحي ثورية
فتعجبت لمطلبه وسؤاله عن الهوية
كيف لم يعرف من عيوني أني عربيه
أم أنه فضل أن أكون أعجمية
لأدخل بلاده دون إبراز الهوية

"Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind." -Albert Einstein
"If any religion rejected Science and knowledge, that religion was false. Science and Religion should go forward together; indeed, they should be like two fingers of one hand. (Abdu'l-Baha)
