For Kindergarten students and new enrolments in other years, Parents/Carers are asked to complete and return an SRE participation letter which is included in your enrolment pack, to indicate whether they wish their child to attend SRE classes or attend Non-SRE.

Students who do not attend SRE classes are provided with alternative meaningful activities (non-curriculum) in accordance with DoE policy.

You can update your preference by writing to the school or through the online form available at participating schools.
