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 Eduction (SRE) options

At Glebe Public School we offer the following options for SRE:

  • Anglican - Junior and Senior
  • Catholic - Junior and Senior
  • Islam
  • Judaism

You may also choose to withdraw your child from SRE. Your child will participate in meaningful activities during this time.

Special Education in Ethics (SEE) option

If you have declined for your child to attend SRE there is an option for your child to attend SEE.

Ethics classes are offered by Primary Ethics and taught by trained volunteers. Primary Ethics was established to provide young people with the space to explore ethical dilemmas within a secular context.
