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 Macarthur Girls High School, SRE classes occur each Thursday morning during PRIDE time (9:05-9:30am). Students who choose to not attend SRE will be supervised in a classroom as they undertake alternative, meaningful activities.
Each year, students will continue the same SRE arrangement as the previous year unless a parent/carer notifies the school in writing that they wish to change their decision.
Currently, there is no provision for Special Ethics Education (SEE) in secondary schools.
