Religion and ethics

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

Weekly half hour scripture lessons catering for Catholic and combined Christian denominations are available to all students.  Provision is made for students whose parents do not wish their children to attend such classes.  Ethics classes are also offered at the same time.

Ethics classes

Weekly half hour ethics classes delivered by Primary Ethics volunteers are available for students in some year groups.  Special Religious Education classes are also offered at the same time. Students also have the option of attending a non-scripture class.
