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 Central Mangrove Public School, special religious education (SRE) and special education in ethics (SEE) is delivered on Tuesday from 1.00pm to 1.30pm.
On enrolment parents/carers will be given the SRE and SEE participation note to complete and return. After the initial enrolment, notification of changes to a child's enrolment in SRE/SEE should be given to the school office, in writing.
The following SRE classes are offered at Central Mangrove Public School:
Catholic SRE is provided by Catholic Diocese of Broken Bay. More information about Catholic SRE, including the authorised curriculum scope and sequence, please visit the Catholic Diocese of Broken Bay website.
Christian SRE is provided by Baptist Union of NSW. More information about Christian SRE, including the authorised curriculum scope and sequence, please visit this website.
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 such as silent reading or private study.
