Special Religious Education (SRE)

Special religious education is education in the beliefs and practices of an approved religious persuasion by authorised representatives of that persuasion. Special religious education is delivered by religious persuasions that have the approval of the Minister for Education for that purpose. A list of approved providers is available at: https://education.nsw.gov.au/curriculum/religion-and- ethics/approved-sre-providers 

Special education in ethics is education in ethical decision making, action and reflection within a secular framework, based on a branch of philosophy. Special education in ethics is an option for students not attending special religious education, where it is practicable and requested by the parents/caregivers. More information is also available at: primaryethics.com.au

Parents/caregivers in public schools have the right to have their children receive instruction in their religious persuasion, where authorised teachers of that persuasion are available.

Parents/caregivers may nominate an alternative persuasion, where special religious education cannot be offered for students of a particular religious persuasion, or for other reasons.

Parents/caregivers also have the right to choose not to have their children attend special religious education.

SRE takes place every Tuesday from 12.30pm to 1.00pm.

There are currently 4 options:

Roman Catholic, Combined Christian, Non Scripture, Ethics
