Religion and Ethics

At Kempsey West Public School, SRE and SEE is delivered on Friday from 1145 - 1245 for K-2 students and for Years 3-6 students. Each stage combines two classes that attend SRE.

On enrolment parents/carers will be given the SRE to complete and return. After the initial enrolment, notification of changes to a child's enrolment in SRE/SEE should be given to the school office, in writing.

The following SRE classes are offered at Kempsey West Public School:

Christian SRE is provided by Mrs Sharon Osbourne, Christian Community Churches of Australia (NSW) and  Mrs Natalie Jupp of Australian Christian Churches. More information about Christian SRE, including the authorised curriculum scope and sequence, please visit the  website

During the time that SRE classes are being held, students from the classes in that stage not attending will be located in a separate space and will participate in meaningful activities, these activities could include reading, private study or completing homework.



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.
