Religion and ethics

SCRIPTURE AT REVESBY SOUTH PUBLIC SCHOOL

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 Revesby South Public School, Special Religious Education (SRE) lessons are offered each Tuesday morning from 9:15 to 9:45 for Primary students and from 9:45 to 10:15 for Infants students. Students are offered various options, including Anglican Scripture, Catholic Scripture, Islamic Scripture, Orthodox Scripture, Senior Ethics (Years 5/6) and Non Scripture, according to parental approval.

The following list outlines the approved external SRE providers and their relevant Working with Children Approval numbers. Class teachers supervise non Scripture classes.
