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.
Thomas Acres Public School offer the following Special Religious Education (SRE) options:-
- Catholic - curriculum
- Islamic (Muslim) - curriculum
This year, due to the availability of SRE teachers, the only classes running are Islamic SRE for Years 1-6, and Catholic classes for Years 3-6. This may change if the school is offered additional SRE teachers. If your preferred SRE option is not available please contact the approved provider. Students not attending SRE are given supervised alternative meaningful activities.
A parent/carer may at any time notify the school in writing that they wish to change their decision. Students will continue the same arrangement as the previous year, unless a parent/carer has requested a change in writing.
If your child attended Scripture at Thomas Acres Public School last year, they will automatically be placed into classes the following year. There is no need to complete another permission note.
Students not attending SRE are given supervised alternative meaningful activities.
Please complete the permission note below and return to the office if you wish for your child to attend classes.
