Religion and ethics

NSW public schools offer special religious education and special education in ethics, delivered by approved providers wherever available.

During enrolment, you can choose a special religious education option for your child from the school’s available approved providers. You can withdraw your child from special religious education by selecting alternative meaningful activities, or special education in ethics if it’s available.

You can update your preference by writing to the school or through the online form available at participating schools.
Visit the department’s website for more information about religion and ethics. 

At our school students have the option to attend Special Religious Education (SRE) , Ethics (SEE) or alternate meaningful activities. Students will attend twice a term for a one hour session. 

If you do not choose for your child to participate in either SRE or SEE they will participate in alternative meaningful activities supervised and organised by classroom teachers. Examples of these activities may include team building tasks, mindfulness and other wellbeing based activities. 

Below are attachments to the curriculum that will be covered by our SRE and SEE providers. 

Our SRE provider is offering an ecumenical service, sometimes referred to as non-denominational. The curriculum can be found at

SEE will be stage based. Here is a link to the primary ethics page outlining curriculum topics for each stage
