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 Bert Oldfield Public School, SRE is delivered on Tuesdays and is held over different times for different years:

 

  • 1.55pm for Years 3-6 students 
  • 2:25pm for K-2 students

 

On enrolment parents/carers will be given the SRE participation letter to complete and return. After the initial enrolment, notification of changes to a child's enrolment in SRE should be given to the class teacher, in writing. The school will inform parents of the available faith based services the school is able to offer in the current year.
