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 Coffs Harbour Public Public School, SRE is delivered once each week for 30 minutes.

On enrolment parents/carers will be given the SRE participation letter  to complete and return. After the initial enrolment, notification of changes to a child's enrolment in SRE should be given to the school office in writing.

The following SRE classes are offered at Coffs Harbour Public School:

Catholic SRE is provided by Baptist Union of NSW - Coffs Coast Schools Ministry. More information about Coffs Coast Schools Ministry SRE, including the authorised curriculum scope and sequence, please visit the Coffs Coast Schools Ministry website.

During the time that SRE classes are being held, students not attending will be located in a separate space and will participate in meaningful activities including reading, private study or completing homework.
