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 Macdonald Valley Public School, Special Religious Education (SRE) is delivered on a Wednesday during Period 1 from 9:15am-9:45am.

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 office, in writing.

At Macdonald Valley Public School we offer classes delivered by the Anglican Diocese of Newcastle.  The link to the Anglican Diocese of Newcastle's authorised curriculum scope and sequence is available at:

Students who have their parent's permission not to attend SRE activities will be supervised by a teacher.
