Religion and ethics

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

At HPS SRE is taught by three different registered providers, Australian Christian Churches, Newcastle Diocese of Newcastle and C3 Church Australia. Please click on the links for more information on the provision of SRE by these providers.

All of these providers have agreed that they will use a common approved curriculum called Godspace. Please click on the link to find out more information about Godspace.

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.
