We will be operating Special Religious Education (SRE) for year 7 on Friday mornings from 9.00 am to 9.30 am.

This service is being provided by approved people from SRE providers – Think Faith. More information on their course material can be found at https://thinkfaith.com.au/.

Students not attending SRE will continue to stay in the “Home Rooms” and continue their pastoral program and roll marking.

NSW DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

Special Religious Education and Special Education in Ethics Participation 

A feature of the public education system in NSW is the opportunity to provide time in class for education in ethics, faith and morality from a religious or non-religious perspective at the choice of parents.

A parent/carer may at any time notify the school in writing that they wish to change their decision. Students will continue the same arrangement as the previous year, unless a parent/carer has requested a change in writing. 

For more information about Special Religious Education (SRE) and Special Education in Ethics (SEE), including the list of approved providers, please visit: https://education.nsw. gov.au/teaching-and-learning/curriculum/learning-across-the-curriculum/religion-and-ethics

If your preferred SRE or SEE option is not available please contact the approved provider. Students not attending SRE or SEE are given supervised alternative meaningful activities.

Combined Christian Scripture is the only option available at Picton High School.

Should you wish your child/ren to attend Special Religious Education in 2022, please complete the form below and return to Picton High School with your enrolment forms.

Yours sincerely

Warren Parkes - Principal
