Religion and ethics

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

Special Religious Education Offerings at NKPS

1) Anglican Christian SRE is provided by Anglican teachers who are authorised and trained by the Anglican Diocese of Sydney, who are an approved SRE provider. Teachers provide education in Christian beliefs and practices for children in years K-6. The SRE curriculum used in this school is produced by Christian Education Publications and is approved by the SRE provider. The curriculum explores the good news about Jesus Christ found in the Bible and the depth of God’s love for people. Each lesson has been developed to be taught in an age-appropriate manner. Lessons include activities which make the lessons fun and inclusive for children and young people, and also give them the opportunity to critically explore and deepen their faith, pray, and reflect. Research has shown that SRE contributes to students’ wholistic education as it nurtures their spiritual wellbeing. For more information about the SRE curriculum used in this school visit

Special Education in Ethics

New South Wales schools open their doors for local religious organisations to conduct Special Religious Education (SRE) on a regular basis. At the same time Primary Ethics is offered as an alternative. While SRE is contingent upon religious groups providing volunteers, Primary Ethics is contingent upon trained parent volunteers and coordination from a Primary Ethics Coordinator who is also a parent. Please communicate with the school if you are able to assist in the delivery of a Primary Ethics program.

Primary Ethics

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.
