Religion and ethics

NSW schools offer special religious education and special education in ethics. Approved providers deliver these, where available.

On enrolment parents/carers will be given the SRE participation letter to complete and return.

The following SRE classes are offered at Seven Hills West Public School:

 

Catholic SRE is provided by Catholic Diocese of Parramatta through St Bernadette’s Parish, Wheeler Street, Lalor Park.

More information about Catholic SRE, including the authorised curriculum scope and sequence, please visit https://parracatholic.org/ccd-home/#catechists.

Protestant SRE is provided by Youthworks through St Clement’s Anglican Church, Lalor Park.

During the time that SRE classes are being held, students not attending will be located in a separate space and will participate in meaningful activities related to their individual interests such as reading, completing​ homework or classwork of their choice. 

 

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.
