Religion and ethics

NSW schools offer special religious education and special education in ethics. Approved providers deliver these, where available.

In 2023 SJBHS will be running Special Religious Education (SRE) in Year 7 and 8 each fortnight. Approved providers will offer programs in Islam, Catholic and Christian education. Links to the providers who are delivering programs are below.

Please return our Special Religious Education or Meaningful other Education Participation Letter to the office.


During COVID19 and any subsequent restrictions on providers delivering face-to-face scripture lessons on site at school, organisations are providing at home learning options. 

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.
