Religion and ethics

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

At Stuart Town Public School, SRE is delivered on 12:30 pm every Thursday.

On enrolment, parents and carers will be given the SRE and SEE participation letter to complete and return. After the initial enrolment, notification of changes to a child's enrolment in SRE/SEE should be given to the school office, in writing or by emailing stuarttown-p.school@det.nsw.edu.au.

The following SRE classes are offered at Stuart Town Public School:

Combined Christian SRE is provided by Baptist Union of NSW, Anglican Diocese of Sydney. For more information about Combined Christian SRE, including the authorised curriculum scope and sequence, please visit https://whysre.com.au/sre-curriculum/cep-curriculum-overview

SEE is provided by Primary Ethics and is not currently available at STPS. For more information about SEE, including the authorised curriculum scope and sequence, please visit the Primary Ethics website www.primaryethics.com.au

During the time that SRE/SEE classes are being held, students not attending will be located in a separate space and will participate in meaningful activities such as reading and independant study.

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.
