Special Religious Education and Ethics

The following denominations offer SRE classes at Dulwich Hill Public School:

  • Catholic – Years 5–6 only
  • Greek Orthodox – Years 1–6
  • Protestant – Years 1–6

SRE commences from Year 1 for those students whose enrolment form identifies one of the above denominations. Classes are 30 minutes and are held on a Wednesday afternoon from 2.10pm for Years 1 and 2; and from 2.40pm for Years 3–6. Students return to class after their lesson. If parents wish to make any changes to this arrangement, they should advise the school in writing.

Students who do not attend SRE either remain in their classroom under teacher supervision or may participate in ethics classes if classes are available.

Ethics classes are offered to students in Stages 2 and 3 students (Years 3–6) who do not attend SRE- Special Religious Education classes. The number of classes offered depends on the number of parents who volunteer to run the classes. Ethics classes are held every Wednesday for 30 minutes. Expressions of interest in teaching classes are accepted from parents who have completed the appropriate processes.
