Religion and ethics

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

At Brooke Avenue Public School, SRE is delivered on Thursday from 9-9.30 (starting 27/2/2020).

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 office by Week 2 of each term, in writing.

The following SRE classes are offered at Brooke Avenue Public School:

  • Catholic SRE is provided by Our Lady of the Rosary Parish Office.
  • SEE to be confirmed
  • Combined SRE is provided by Condell Park Bible Church
  • Islamic SRE is provided by Central Coast Islamic Cultural Centre

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 such as reading, drawing or writing.

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.
