Religion and ethics

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

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.

At Orange Public School, SRE, SEE and Buddhist scripture is delivered on Wednesdays for K-2 students from 1pm to 1.50pm and for Years 3-6 students from 2.20pm to 3.10pm.

On enrolment parents/carers will be given the SRE and SEE participatation letter to complete and return. After the initial enrolment, the school will also ask the parent each year in our General Permission note which class the parent would like their child to attend. Any notification of changes to a child's enrolment during the year in SRE/SEE and Buddhist scripture should be given to the classroom teacher in writing.

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.
