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. 

On enrolment parents/carers can select SRE/SEE (online enrolment) or 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.

The following SRE classes are offered at Lake Cathie Public School:

  • Combined Christian SRE is provided by Anglican Diocese of Newcastle, Baptist Union NSW, The Point Community Church and Grace Church. For more information about Combined Christian SRE, including the authorised curriculum scope and sequence, please visit the Godspace and CEP websites. 

SEE is currently not available at Lake Cathie Public School.

During the time that SRE/SEE classes are being held, students not attending will be located in a separate space and will participate in meaningful activities.
