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. 

At Gordon East Public School, SRE and SEE is delivered each Tuesday from 9:20-9:40am.

On enrolment, parents/carers will be asked which SRE or SEE group they wish for their child to attend. After the initial enrolment, notification of changes to a child's SRE/SEE group must be emailed to the school.
