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. 

Christian Special Religious Education (SRE) is offered to Mulwaree High School in a combined Goulburn churches arrangement and is overseen by the Southern Tablelands Christian Education Committee. The Christian SRE teacher is authorised by, and the Christian SRE curriculum approved by, the Anglican Diocese of Canberra and Goulburn.

Christian SRE seminars are offered to Stage 4 students (Years 7 and 8) twice a term. These involve open discussion and interactive learning based on the authorised curriculum, Think Faith. The goal of these classes is to provide students with opportunities to explore the bigger questions of life and gain a basic understanding of Christian beliefs and study contemporary issues related to the Christian faith. Students will also develop the critical literacy skills required to make informed decisions about the Christian faith for themselves.

Further information about the Think Faith curriculum can be located at:

Year 7 and 8 students who do not attend Christian Special Religious Education will be provided with supervised alternative meaningful opportunities such as reading, private study or completing homework.

Student participation is nominated by parents/carers at enrolment. Write to the school if you wish to opt-in, or to withdraw your child from special religious education. For more information, visit Religion and ethics.
