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.
Special religious education
This year, all students will have access to Special Religious Education (SRE). This will be run by Cambridge Park Community Christian Church.
Year 7 SRE classes will run Fridays on a fortnightly basis for 1 hour. Students who have indicated on their enrolment for that they are of a Christian faith will be included in these lessons. Students of other faiths or who have indicated not religion on their enrolment forms will be supervised by their usual teacher in a separate classroom. We are looking into the option of Ethics classes being run at this time, and will provide details to parents if this becomes available.
All other students are invited to attend SRE at 2.20pm until 3.00pm on Tuesday afternoons.
