Religion and ethics classes

All government schools offer a range of classes in religious education or ethics. The actual classes available will vary between schools but will generally cover:

  • instruction in a specific religion that is delivered by approved representatives of that religion
  • religious education that looks more generally at the world’s major religions and how those beliefs affect lives
  • ethics classes

Parents can also choose not to send their children to any religious or ethics classes. In that case, students attend other supervised activities such as reading, study or homework.

A separate form indicating your preference will be provided by the school. You will need to complete and submit this as part of the enrolment process.

Contact your school for more details.
