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.
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 should be given, in writing, to the office.
At Jindabyne Central School, Combined Christian SRE is delivered on Fridays for K-6 students.
During the time that SRE classes are being held, students not attending will participate in alternative meaningful activities under the supervision of a Classroom Teacher. Students will not be participating in lessons in the school curriculum or other extra-curricular activities during this time.
