NSW schools offer special religious education and special education in ethics. Approved providers deliver these, where available.
At Caringbah Public School, SRE (Special Religious Education) is delivered each Thursday from 2:00-2:35pm for K-2 students and 2:40 – 3:15pm for 3-6 students. Currently, we do not provide Primary Ethics due to a lack of volunteers to lead these classes.
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 or non-Scripture should be given to the office, in writing.
The following SRE classes are offered at Caringbah Public School:
1. Combined SRE is provided by Anglican Diocese of Sydney. More information about Combined SRE, including the authorised curriculum scope and sequence, please visit the Anglican and Protestant website Combined SRE curriculum link
2. Catholic SRE is provided by the Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney. For more information about Catholic SRE, including the authorised curriculum scope and sequence, please visit Catholic SRE curriculum link
3. Greek Orthodox SRE is provided by Christ in Our Midst. More information can be found on the website Greek Orthodox SRE curriculum link
During the time that SRE classes are being held, students not attending will be in a separate space and will participate in a quiet activity.
