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.

On enrolment parents/carers will be given the SRE and SEE participation letter (PDF 87.2KB) to complete and return. After the initial enrolment, notification of changes to a child's enrolment in SRE/SEE should be given to the School Office, in writing.

The following options are currently available at Dapto Public School:

Students not attending SRE or SEE are given supervised alternative meaningful activities.
Suitable activities may include reading, private study, completing homework or other activities as considered appropriate.


Our school has recently received information about Scripture (SRE) and Ethics (SEE) learning at home portals, available for use during the current COVID-19 remote learning period. These portals have been set up to provide students and parents/guardians with access to Scripture & Ethics resources, designed to be used with adult guidance and supervision.

Instead of face-to-face or direct online Scripture or Ethics classes, there will be three portal entry points to support learning at home for SRE and SEE students from Kindergarten to Year 6, until our school resumes normal operations. Please click the links below to access these portals.
