Religion and ethics

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


Parents and carers have the right to have their child receive instruction in their preferred religious persuasion, where authorised teachers of that persuasion are available. A Special Religious Education (SRE) program is available at Glenmore Park Public Public School and is run by authorised volunteers of approved religious persuasions. Parents/carers can choose for their child not to attend SRE classes.

On enrolment parents/carers will be given the SRE participation letter to complete and return. After the initial enrolment, notification of changes to a child’s enrolment in SRE should be given to the office, in writing.

Students not attending SRE are given supervised alternative activities. Activities may include reading, private study or completing homework. 


At Glenmore Park Public School, the SRE program is delivered on Tuesdays from 11:00am-11.30am for K-2 students and on Thursdays from 11:00am-11:30am  for Years 3-6 students.

The following SRE classes are offered at Glenmore Park Public School:

  • Catholic provided by St Padre Pio Parish Glenmore Park
  • Protestant provided by Glenmore Park Anglican Church
  • Sikhism provided by Australian Sikh Association

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.
