Religion and ethics

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. 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.

At Walcha Central School, Special Religious Education (SRE) is delivered to students in K-6 fortnightly on a Tuesday from 2.10 to 3pm.

On enrolment, parents will be given the SRE participation letter to complete and return.  After the initial enrolment, notification of changes to your child's enrolment in SRE should be given to the school office in writing.

The following SRE classes are offered at Walcha Central School:

Combined Christian SRE is provided by the Anglican Diocese Armidale and Presbyterian Church of Australia (NSW).  For more information about the authorised curriculum scope and sequence, please visit:

In the allocated time set aside for religious education, students not attending will be provided with supervised alternative meaningful activities.  This may include reading, private study or completing homework.  They will be in a separate physical space from SRE classes and will be supervised by a member of the school staff.
