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.

Special Religious Education (SRE) is education provided to students in NSW public schools by authorised representatives of approved religious groups to students who have nominated that religion. These classes are commonly known as “scripture”. If you would like your daughter to participate she can get a permission note from the Head Teacher Wellbeing.

At Bankstown Girls High School, both Islamic and Christian SRE is offered to our students. By providing religious autonomy and choice, we allow our students to nurture their own faith within the school environment and feel respected for their religious or non-religious beliefs.
