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. 

At Daceyville Public School, SRE and SEE is delivered each Tuesday from 2:10-2:40 for Years 3-6, and from 2:40-3:10 for Years K-2.

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 given to the office in writing. 

The following SRE classes are offered at Daceyville Public School:

Catholic SRE is provided by the Catholic Diocese of Sydney. This SRE program uses the 'Christ our Light and Life' curriculum. More information about this is available at http://ccd.sydneycatholic.org

Protestant SRE is provided by Churches of Christ in NSW (Fresh Hope). This SRE program uses the 'Godspace Primary Curriculum'.

Buddhist SRE is provided by the Buddhist Council. Information about the authorised curriculum used in this class is provided at this website: http://www.buddhistcouncil.org/sre-program/

Greek Orthodox Scripture is provided by the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia through the parish of St Spyridon. This SRE program uses the 'Christ in our Midst' curriculum. More information about this program is available on their website. 

At the moment we are unable to offer other programs as there are no teachers available from the authorised providers.

During the time that SRE/SEE classes are being held, students not attending will be located in a separate space and will participate in meaningful activities, such as reading.
