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.
Special Religious Education at Ariah Park Central School
Ariah Park Central School has a long history of providing Religious Education through approved Religious Organisations. Our parent and community volunteers provide this program coordinated by the APCAT group (Ariah Park Churches Working Together).
Primary students receive Religious Education once per week using the "Godspace" Program.
Our secondary students receive Religious Education once per month, following the "Thinkfaith Program".
Students are also invited to participate in Christmas, Easter and Education Week Services.
A parent/carer may at any time notify the school in writing that they do not wish their child to participate in SRE and/or Ecumenical Services. Students not attending are given supervised alternative meaningful activities.
