Religion and ethics

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

At Windang Public School, Special Religious Education (SRE) is delivered on Thursday at 2.00pm for K-Year 2 students and 2.30pm Years 3-6 students.

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 made in writing then given to our administration staff.

The following SRE classes are offered at Windang Public School:

  • Protestant SRE is provided by Youthworks. More information about Protestant SRE, including the authorised curriculum scope and sequence, please visit
  • Catholic SRE is provided by Catholic Diocese of Wollongong, More information about Catholic SRE, including the authorised curriculum scope and sequence, please visit

During the time that SRE classes are being held, students not attending will be located in a separate space and will participate in meaningful activities that may include reading , private study or completing homework.

Special Education in Ethics is currently unavailable at Windang Public School.


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.
