NSW schools offer special religious education and special education in ethics. Approved providers deliver these, where available.
Special Religious Education (SRE) programs are available at Springwood High School and are run by authorised volunteers of approved religious persuasions. On enrolment parents/carers will be given the SRE participation letter.
Below is the list of approved SRE programs provided on a joint basis by Springwood and Winmalee Interdenominational Scripture in High Schools (SWISH) for 2020. Additional details of SRE programs on offer at the school can be obtained from SRE providers. Contact details of SRE program coordinators can be provided by the school if required.
- Combined Protestant SRE
If you have any concerns about your child’s participation in the SRE program please contact the school. The school has allocated time on Friday afternoon from 12noon where students are given an exit pass to attend, as it is halfway through a lesson before lunch. Students who attend SRE do not miss out on any new work; students not attending will participate in revision and consolidation of learning.
For more information, please see the SWISH CEA website:
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.
