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. 

Scripture lessons are scheduled to begin in Week 5 (Wednesday, 24th February). 

Lessons for students in Years 3-6 will be held each Wednesday between 9:00am and 9:30am. Lessons for students in Years K-2 will be held each Wednesday between 9:30am and 10:00am.

The options for Special Religious Education (SRE) are as follows:

1. Combined Christian scripture (teaches a general Christian message)

2. Catholic scripture (follows the teachings of the Catholic faith)

3. Non-scripture (for students whose parents don’t wish them to attend either of the first two options)

NB. Special Education in Ethics (SEE) classes will not be available because of a lack of interested and available teachers. If you would like to become an Ethics volunteer teacher, please refer to the Primary Ethics website for further information.

The names of the curriculum used by the Combined Christian scripture are CEP Beginning with God (Kindergarten) and Godspace (years 1-6). The correlating websites are cepconnect.com.au and godspace.org.au. Both of these websites allow parents to view the curriculum and access sample lessons and activities.

The Catholic scripture group follows the Walking with Jesus program, based on the Diocese of Broken Bay K-12 Special Religious Education Foundations and Syllabus document. Parents are able to view the curriculum, lessons and resources at https://www.bbcatholic.org.au/parish-community/ministries/ccd/curriculum
