Religion and ethics

NSW public schools offer special religious education and special education in ethics, delivered by approved providers wherever available.


Our Scripture classes are delivered on Monday afternoons from 2.00pm – 2.30pm. 

On enrolment parents/carers are given the Special Religions Education Participation Letter to complete and return. Any changes to a child's S.R.E enrolment during their school years should be made in writing to the school office.

Scripture classes offered at Mount Kembla Public School are Anglican and Catholic:

  • Anglican Scripture is provided by the Wollongong Region of the Anglican Diocese of Sydney. More information about, including the authorised curriculum scope and sequence, please visit the Anglican Diocese of Sydney website
  • Catholic Scripture is provided by the Catholic Diocese of Wollongong. More information about the Catholic SRE, including the authorised curriculum scope and sequence, please visit the Catholic Diocese of Wollongong website

Students not attending scripture are given supervised alternative meaningful activities.


During enrolment, you can choose a special religious education option for your child from the school’s available approved providers. You can withdraw your child from special religious education by selecting alternative meaningful activities, or special education in ethics if it’s available.

You can update your preference by writing to the school or through the online form available at participating schools.
