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 Bilambil Public School, Special Religious Education (SRE) is delivered on Monday afternoons from 1.30pm (For K-2 students, 1.30pm-2.00pm and from 2.00pm-2.30pm for Years 3-6 students).

On enrolment parents/careers will be given the SRE and participation letter to complete and return.

Special Education in Ethics. We currently do not have a provider for Primary Ethics, therefore Special Education in Ethics will not be on offer.

During the time that Special Religious Education classes are being held, students not attending will be located in a separate space and will be supervised by the school staff. Supervision of students is consistent with the department’s duty of care requirements outlined in the Code of Conduct Students are not to participate in lessons in the school curriculum or other extra-curricular activities during this time. Students will participate in other various meaningful activities such as quiet reading, private study, finishing work and revision of current topics.
