Religion and ethics

NSW schools offer special religious education and special education in ethics. Approved providers deliver these, where available.

How your child can participate in Special Religious Education?

Students are always welcome to attend  SRE classes at JEPS. The SRE options available are; Catholic and Protestant. Parents  nominate what religious denomination they wish their child to attend when completing the school enrolment form. Parents can also change the SRE class their child attends at any time or even withdraw them from SRE. This can be done by notifying the  school in writing.

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.
