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. 

Special religious education

Non-denominational religious instruction is conducted by a volunteer lay teacher for one half hour lesson each week.

If you do not wish your child to participate in non-denominational scripture a note is required at the beginning of each new school year.
