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.
Parents and carers in public schools 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 Green Valley Public School and is run by authorised volunteers of approved religious persuasions. For details about the specific SRE programs, please see below. Alternatively, parents may choose for their child not to attend SRE classes.
At Green Valley Public School, the SRE program is delivered on Wednesdays from 2.00pm to 2.30pm.
During the time that SRE classes are being held, there will be no academic instruction delivered or formal school activities. Children will therefore not be missing any class work by attending SRE classes. Students attending non-SRE classes will participate in meaningful activities such as reading, private study or completing their own work.
During the year, notification of changes to a child's enrolment in SRE classes should be given to the class teacher in writing.
In 2019, the following SRE classes are offered at Green Valley Public School:
