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 Parramatta High School, Special Religious Education (SRE) is delivered on Wednesdays from 12:00-12:50.
Parents/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 SRE nomination should be given to the Principal, in writing.
Parramatta High School currently offers Christian SRE which is provided by teachers who are authorised and trained by the Anglican Diocese of Sydney. The curriculum can be viewed at www.thinkfaith.com.au
During the time that SRE classes are being held, students not attending will be located in a separate space and will participate in meaningful activities such as wellbeing activities related to their year group.
