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. 

Special Religious Education (SRE) at Tenterfield High School

The Tenterfield Christian Education Association acquired the services of Mr Hugh McCowen, who delivers the SRE program to students in Year 7 and 8 for one hour per week and Year 9 students an hour per fortnight.

The approved provider for Tenterfield High School SRE is the Armidale Anglican Diocese.

A note on enrolment is provided to notify the school that parents/carers DO wish their child to attend SRE. If the note is not returned it is assumed that the child will not participate in SRE.
