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 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.
