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. 


Whole class scripture is held every Thursday afternoon at 2:15 to 2:45pm. 

A teacher from each stage supervises the non-scripture students.

All other class teachers remain with the scripture teachers.

If you do not want your child to participate in scripture please notify the school in writing.
