Religion and ethics

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

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.
Visit the department’s website for more information about religion and ethics. 

At Tweed River High School special religious education (SRE) lessons are provided by the Tweed Coast Christian Education Association, accredited with Australian Christian Churches, as the organisation approved to provide Special Religious Education. The curriculum studied during SRE lessons at Tweed River High School can be found on the Why SRE Website:

Students who do not attend special religious education will be given meaningful activities such as reading, private study and completing homework under the supervision of their usual classroom teacher.

Students will continue to be enrolled in the same arrangement as the previous year, unless a parent/caregiver has requested a change in writing to the school.
