Religion and ethics

NSW schools offer special religious education and special education in ethics. Approved providers deliver these, where available.

At Quirndi Public School, SRE is delivered on Wednesday each week at the following times:

K-2 students from 1:00pm to 1:30pm

Years 3-4 from 2:05pm to 2:40pm and

Years 5-6 from 2:40pm to 3:10pm

On enrolment parents and 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 should be given to the school office, in writing.

The following SRE classes are offered at Quirindi Public School:

Catholic SRE is provided by Catholic Diocese of Armidale. More information about Catholic SRE, including the authorised curriculum scope and sequence, please visit the Catholic Diocese of Armidale website.

Christian SRE is a combined scripture which includes Anglican Diocese of Armidale, Australian Christian Churches and Uniting Church in Australia. The Christian Education Publications Connect Curriculum is used by this group. This publication can be found at www.cepstore.com.au

During the time that SRE classes are being held, students not attending will be located in a separate space and will participate in meaningful activities (activities could include reading, private study or completing homework).

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.
