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 Lake Illawarra Soupth Public School, SRE is delivered on Friday from 11.15-11.45am.
On enrolment, parents/carers will be given the Special Religious Education (SRE) and Skills for Education and Employment (SEE) participation letter 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 Lake Illawarra South Public School:
Protestant SRE is provided by the Anglican Diocese of Sydney. More information about Protestant SRE, including the authorised curriculum scope and sequence, please visit the Anglican Diocese of Sydney website.
Currently Lake Illawarra South Public School is unable to provide SEE as the approved provider has been unable to secure volunteers to deliver the authorised curriculum. If you are interested in in completing training, please contact the school for further information.
During the time that SRE classes are being held, students not attending will be located in a separate space and will participate in meaningful activities including reading, private study or completing homework.
