Scripture (SRE)

NSW schools offer special religious education and special education in ethics. Approved providers deliver these, where available.

At Bankstown North Public School, half an hour is set aside each Wednesday for scripture lessons by religious groups. Our school currently offers religious instruction in Catholic, Islamic and Protestant scriptures.

Write to the school if you wish to withdraw your child from special religious education, sometimes known as scripture.

In the times set aside for special religious education, students not attending are located in a separate physical space from special religious education classes. Our school provides meaningful activities with appropriate care and supervision. These activities neither compete with special religious education nor are they lessons in the curriculum.
