Religion and ethics

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

On enrolment parents/carers will be given the SRE and SEE participation letter to complete and return. After the initial enrolment, notification of changes to a child's enrolment in SRE/SEE should be given to the school office, in writing.

During the time that SRE/SEE classes are being held, students not attending will be located in a separate space and will participate in alternate activities such as reading and private study.
