Special Religious Education and Special Education in Ethics

Student Participation in SRE and SEE

Religion and Ethics

NSW public schools offer special religious education and special education in ethics. Where available, approved providers deliver these services.

At HSPA, Primary SRE and SEE take place on Fridays a few weeks per term. The secondary seminars take place once per term for two periods. 

A parent/carer may notify the school in writing that they wish to change their decision at any time. 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. Students not attending SRE or SEE are given supervised alternative meaningful activities. For more information, visit Religion and ethics.
