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.

Scripture and Primary Ethics classes

At Beacon Hill Public School, SRE and SEE is delivered on Wednesday at 9:05am for Kindergarten, Years 1 and 2; 9:45am for Years 3 and 4 and 10:25am for Years 5 and 6.

On enrolment parents/carers will be given the SRE and SEE participation letter (Special Religious Education and Special Education in Ethics Participation Letter PDF 47.7KB ) to complete and return.

After the initial enrolment, notification of changes to a child's enrolment in SRE/SEE should be given to our school office, in writing.

The following SRE classes are offered at Beacon Hill Public School:

Catholic SRE is provided by Catholic Diocese of Broken Bay. More information about Catholic SRE, including the authorised curriculum scope and sequence, please visit the Catholic Diocese of Broken Bay website
