Religion and ethics

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

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.

At Leonay Public School, SRE is delivered on Thursday from 9.30-10.00am.

On enrolment parents/carers will be given the SRE participation letter to complete and return. Alternatively if you are submitting your enrolment application online you can download a copy of the SRE letter in our 'Notes' tab. After the initial enrolment, notification of changes to a child's enrolment in SRE should be given to the office, in writing.

The following SRE classes are offered at Leonay Public School:

Catholic SRE is provided by the Catholic Diocese of Parramatta. More information about Catholic SRE, including the authorised curriculum scope and sequence can be found at
