NSW schools offer special religious education and special education in ethics. Approved providers deliver these, where available.
At Telopea Public School, SRE is delivered on Tuesdays from 11.30am-12.15pm.
On enrolment parents/carers will be given the SRE participation letter to complete and return. After the initial enrolment, notification of changes to a child's enrolment in SRE should be given to the school in writing.
