Scientology class suits shy Hindu - 2003-06-24
Mrs Nallathambi, a Hindu, was unaware that The Athena School is Sydney's only Scientologist school. But she liked what she saw, and enrolled Raja at the beginning of last year. "Now he's more confident, there's no more tears," she said. "At the other school he had no friends, now I can't get him to come home at the end of the day.".
The Athena School has 90 pupils, from pre-school to year 10, and eight teachers, who have reportedly completed six months training in L. Ron Hubbard teaching techniques, rather than holding formal qualifications. Fees are about $1500 a term.
