Religion and ethics

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

The Special Religion Education (SRE) and Special Education Ethics (SEE) programs at Fort Street Public School are delivered every week.

SRE classes are currently available for the following groups:

Anglican (K-2 and Yrs 3-6)

Catholic (K-2 and Yrs 3-6)

SEE is currently available for the following groups:

Primary Ethics (Yrs 1-6)

Currently no SEE Kindergarten class is available.

If you would like to volunteer, please contact Primary Ethics.

Please visit the above links if you would like more information, or to access the curriculum, for each of our SRE/SEE offerings.

Non-Scripture Classes

Students who do not wish to participate in SRE/SEE classes can enrol in non-scripture classes where they will undertake meaningful activities, such as reading, drawing or developmental play, supervised by a Fort Street teacher.

Fort Street students will continue in the same class as the previous year, unless a parent/caregiver has requested a change.

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.
