Religion and ethics

NSW public schools offer special religious education and special education in ethics, delivered by approved providers wherever available.

At Guise Public School, special religious education (SRE) is delivered on Thursday from 11:35am to 12:05pm for students in Kindergarten to Year 3, and 12:10pm to 12:40pm for students in Years 4 to 6.

On enrolment parents/carers will be given the SRE and SEE participation letters (PDF 95.3KB) 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 Guise Public School

Catholic SRE is provided by the Catholic Diocese of Wollongong. More information about Catholic SRE, including the authorised curriculum scope and sequence, please visit the Catholic Diocese of Wollongong website

Anglican SRE is provided by The Anglican Parish of Ingleburn. For more information about Anglican SRE, including authorised curriculum scope and sequence, please visit the WhySRE website.

During the time that SRE/SEE classes are being held, students not attending will be located in a separate space and will participate in meaningful activities including reading and revision.

During enrolment, you can choose a special religious education option for your child from the school’s available approved providers. You can withdraw your child from special religious education by selecting alternative meaningful activities, or special education in ethics if it’s available.

You can update your preference by writing to the school or through the online form available at participating schools.
