Religion and ethics

NSW public schools offer special religious education and special education in ethics, delivered by approved providers wherever available.

During enrolment, you can choose a special religious education option for your child from the school’s available approved providers. You can withdraw your child from special religious education by selecting alternative meaningful activities, or special education in ethics if it’s available.

You can update your preference by writing to the school or through the online form available at participating schools.
Visit the department’s website for more information about religion and ethics. 

Special Religious Education (SRE) and Special Education in Ethics (SEE)

A feature of the public education system in NSW is the opportunity to provide time in class for education in ethics, faith and morality from a religious or non-religious perspective at the choice of parents.

For more information about SRE and a list of approved providers, please visit:

SRE at Macintyre is delivered through year group seminars once per term by the Inverell Ministers Fellowship.  Students not attending SRE are given supervised alternative meaningful activities.
