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.

SRE-Special Religious Education at South Grafton High School

Students at South Grafton High from years 7 to 10 participate in Special Religious Education (SRE) classes once a fortnight (cycle).

The school provides an authorised specialist teacher who is organised by Generate Ministries. The teacher has met the Department of Education (DoE) guidelines with SRE Accreditation Training and has met relevant requirements in the Child Protection Act 2012, and the Child Protection regulation 2013.

In compliance with DoE Religious Education Implementation Procedures, the teacher has had their WWCC number verified by their authorising SRE provider, Generate Ministries.

Students who do not participate in SRE classes are allocated a supervised classroom to do private study, which follows DoE guidelines.
