Religion and ethics

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

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.
Visit the department’s website for more information about religion and ethics. 

In the past Binalong Public School has provided Special Religious Education (SRE), through approved Religious organisations for our students. 

In 2019 scripture will be held twice a term by the Anglican Diocese of Canberra and Goulburn.

Students will receive a participation letter which will need to be returned to the school, indicating if they will participate in SRE. A parent /caregiver may, at any time notify the school in writing that they do not wish their child to participate in Religious Education.

Students not attending SRE will be located in a supervised separate space and will participate in alternative and meaningful activities. These activities do not compete with SRE/SEE and are not lessons in the curriculum. Suitable activities may include reading, private study, completing homework or other activities as considered to be appropriate by the school community.
