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 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.
