Religion and ethics

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 Petersham Public School, SRE and SEE is delivered on Fridays from 10.45-11.15am.

Parents/carers will be asked to choose one of the options available when completing the online enrolment application.

After the initial enrolment, changes to a child's enrolment in SRE or SEE can be made at any time during the year by emailing the school.

The following SRE class is offered at our school - Combined Christian SRE.

For more information about Combined Christian SRE, please email the school at

SEE is provided by Primary Ethics. For more information about SEE, including the authorised curriculum scope and sequence, please visit the Primary Ethics 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 alternative meaningful activities (AMA) including private study, reading or research.
