Religion and ethics

NSW public schools offer special religious education and special education in ethics, delivered by approved providers wherever available.

At East Hills Public School, Special Religious Education (SRE) is delivered on at Tuesday from 2:15pm.

On enrolment parents/carers will be given the SRE participation letter to complete and return. 

The following SRE classes are offered at East Hills Public School, Roman Catholic, Islamic and Anglican.

Roman Catholic SRE is provided by the Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney. Islamic SRE is provided by the Islamic Council of NSW. Anglican SRE is provided by the Anglican Diocese of Sydney.

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 or private study. 


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.
