Students are expected to attend Special Religious Education (SRE) for one period each week. The SRE program caters for students of most cultural backgrounds. Students consider moral and ethical issues from a religious perspective.
In Years 7 and 8, SRE is integrated into the timetable. In Years 9, 10, 11 and 12, SRE is conducted on a Thursday afternoon.
If no provision of lessons is currently available in your stated religion, you may select an appropriate alternative or you might approach a representative of that religion regarding involvement in the school’s SRE program. This involvement should be discussed with the principal and is conditional on the religion having an approved provider.
Students not attending SRE will be supervised by the school and can work independently on homework, reading or private study depending on the availability of rooms and supervision.
SRE teachers will be provided with a class list of the names of students. At any time, you have the right to change your SRE nomination or to withdraw your child from SRE lessons. A note to the Principal will affect this change.
