Religion and ethics

Special Religious Education (SRE) and Special Education in Ethics (SEE)

NSW schools offer special religious education and special education in ethics. Approved providers deliver these, where 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.

On enrolment, parents/carers will be given a SRE and SEE participation letter to complete and return.  The note is available here - SRE and SEE.pdf

After the initial enrolment, notification of changes to a child’s SRE/SEE enrolment is to be provided to the school in writing at Gosford Public School
