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.

SRE lessons are delivered to our students by voluntary teachers. These teachers are recruited, trained, and authorised to teach by an approved provider. Information about this and lesson content can be located at:
