Vice-principal of Emmanuel College, Gateshead, Gary Wiecek, wrote a paper in which he invoked the "duty" of creationist teachers to counter "false doctrines" of evolution.

An Emmanuel English teacher, Alison McLean, asked colleagues to select literature that would "equip our children to face both the obvious and the insidious challenges to the Christian belief".

Emmanuel's head of science, Steven Layfield, listed helpful hints for those "engaged in the struggle to show the superiority of a creationist world-view against the prevailing orthodoxy of atheistic materialism and evolutionism in science". He noted, for instance, that "the feasibility of maintaining an ark full of representative creatures for a year until the waters had sufficiently receded has been well documented."
