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 Parramatta North Public School, Special Religious Education (SRE) is delivered on Wednesdays from 9:30-10:00 (3-6) and 10:00-10:30 (K-2).

Upon enrolment parents/carers will be given the SRE and SEE participation letter to complete and return. After initial enrolment, notification of changes to a child's enrolment in SRE/SEE should be given to the office, in writing.
