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.


Scripture lessons are conducted by visiting clergy and assistants each Wednesday from 11am to 11.30am. Groups include Roman Catholic and Protestants (which includes such religions as Uniting, Baptist, Salvation Army, Anglican and any other religion other than Roman Catholic).

Children attend the scripture group nominated by their parents. Variation to this procedure only occurs through written request and with permission from the Principal.
