General Information

Special Religious Education at Barrenjoey High School

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. For more information, visit Religion and ethics.

Parents/caregivers in public schools have the right to have their children receive instruction in their preferred religious persuasion, where authorised teachers of that persuasion are available.

A special religious education program is available at Barrenjoey and is run by authorised volunteers of approved religious persuasions.

Below is the list of approved special religious education programs provided at Barrenjoey. A link from each provider is listed to access information regarding the provider's curriculum scope and sequence.


Option 1:    Catholic SRE

Option 2:    Combined Christian SRE using Anglican curriculum

Students not attending SRE will be provided with supervised alternative activities. This could include reading, private study or completing homework.

Students continue in the same arrangement each year, unless parents/caregivers request a change in writing. At any time, parents/caregivers have the right to change the SRE nominations or to withdraw their child from the nominated lessons. A note to the school email will affect this change. -
