Religion and ethics

NSW schools offer special religious education and special education in ethics. Approved providers deliver these, where available.

Write to the school if you wish to withdraw your child from special religious education, sometimes known as scripture. Special education in ethics is an option for your primary-age child if you withdraw them from special religious education. For more information, visit Religion and ethics.

Christian SRE classes involve open discussion and interactive learning based on the authorised curriculum, Think Faith. The goal of these classes (known as Special Religious Education, or "SRE") is to provide students with opportunities to explore the bigger questions of life and gain a basic understanding of Christian beliefs. 

Local Christian churches employ a teacher at the school to teach Christian SRE in fortnightly classes for students in Years 7-8.

In the allocated time set aside for SRE, students not attending are provided with supervised alternative meaningful activities. This could include reading, private study or completing homework. No new work will be done during this time.
