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.

YPS Information about Special Religious Education (SRE)

At Young Public School, SRE is delivered on Wednesdays for most classes. Classes participating this semester will receive 30 minutes SRE instruction.

On enrolment parents/carers will be given the SRE participation letter to complete and return. After the initial enrolment, notification of changes to a child's enrolment in SRE should be given to the class teacher, in writing.

The following SRE providers offer classes at Young Public School: Young Presbyterian ChurchYoung Baptist Church, and New Life Community Church. For more information about each denomination, including the authorised curriculum scope and sequence, please visit the linked websites.

During the time that SRE classes are being held, students not attending will undertake values-based activities . 

Students continue the same arrangements each year, unless a parent/caregiver has requested a change in writing. At any time, you have the right to change your SRE nomination or to withdraw your child from the nominated lessons. A note to the Principal will affect this change.
