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 Glenmore Road Public School we offer both Special Ethics Education (SEE) and Special Religious Education (SRE). If you wish your child to participate in either of these programs they need written permission from a parent or guardian. Both SRE and SEE are taught by authorised teachers with government approved curriculum.

SRE and SEE is delivered on Thursday, from 9.30 - 10am for students in K - 6. 

On enrolment 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 enrolment in SRE/SEE should be made by contacting the School Office. 

The following SRE classes are offered at Glenmore Road Public School:


  • Catholic
  • Anglican
  • Jewish
  • Buddhism (Yr 3-6)  


SEE is provided by Primary Ethics. For more information about SEE, including the authorised curriculum scope and sequence, please visit the Primary Ethics website →

During the time that SRE/SEE classes are being held, students not attending will be supervised in a classroom and can read, colour-in or play quietly. This is referred to as Non-Scripture class.
