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 Croydon Park Public School, Special Religious Education (SRE) and Special Education in Ethics (SEE) are delivered on Tuesdays between 2.00pm and 3.00pm.  On enrolment parents/carers are given SRE and SEE participation forms to complete and return.  After the initial enrolment, notification of changes to a child's enrolment in SRE/SEE should be given in writing to the school office.
