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 (SRE) is held each Tuesday from 11:55am to 12:30pm for all students K–6.

At the time of enrolment, the student's parent or carer will receive an SRE participation letter to complete and return to us. This will outline the SRE options available at our school.

If you would like to change your child's SRE choice after the initial enrolment, or in the future, please advise us in writing. You can email: terranora-p.school@det.nsw.edu.au or complete another participation letter.
