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 Sans Souci Public School, Special Religious Education (SRE) and Special Education in Ethics (SEE) is delivered on Tuesday for 30 minutes at 9:30am for Years 3-6 students and 10:15am for K-2 students.

On enrolment parents or carers 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 or SEE should be given to the classroom teacher, in writing.

The following SRE classes are offered at Sans Souci Public School:
