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. 

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.
