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.
Merrylands East Public School provides special religious education (SRE) on Mondays between 11.30am and 1.00pm each week. The SRE offered includes Catholic, Combined Christian, Muslim and Hindu classes. Students not participating in SRE are provided with supervised meaningful activities. This could include reading, independent study or completing class tasks.
Parents wishing to change scripture or non-scripture groups can contact the school to update their child's information.
Further information can be found below for each religious education group.
