Religion and ethics

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

SRE takes place in Years 8 and 9 for 1 period a fortnight within the timetable. The group running SRE at HRHS are the Christian Community Churches of Australia.

Information on the curriculum followed by the group can be found at the following link

Currently there is no provision for Special Ethics Education (SEE) in secondary schools.


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.
