Religion and ethics

NSW schools offer special religious education and special education in ethics. Approved providers deliver these, where available.

At Winmalee High School, special religious education (SRE) is delivered to Year 7 on Tuesdays in Period 2a. Other years may occasionally be involved in seminars organised by the combined churches. These are notified at the time and require a permission note from parents to participate.

On enrolment parents/carers will be given the SRE participation letter (164KB) to complete and return. After the initial enrolment, notification of changes to a child's enrolment in SRE should be given to the office, in writing.

The following SRE classes are offered at Winmalee High School:

Protestant SRE is provided by approved volunteers from the Anglican Diocese of Sydney. For more information about Protestant SRE, including the authorised curriculum scope and sequence, please visit the Anglican Diocese of Sydney.

Catholic SRE is provided by the Catholic Diocese of Sydney. For more information about Catholic SRE, including the authorised curriculum scope and sequence, please visit the Catholic Diocese of Sydney.

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 such as reading, private study or completing homework.

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.
