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.
At Ungarie Central School, SRE is delivered once a week for K-6 students.
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.
At Ungarie Central School there is one provider for SRE for each class across K-6, the Catholic Archdiocese of Canberra & Goulburn.
SEE classes do not take place at Ungarie Central School. For more information about SEE, including the authorised curriculum scope and sequence, please visit the Primary Ethics website https://primaryethics.com.au.
During the time that SRE classes are being held, students not participating will participate in meaningful activities – such as reading, private study, revision or completing homework.
Students participating in SRE will remain in their classrooms and be supervised by representatives of the respective authorised provider.
