Religion and ethics

NSW public schools offer special religious education and special education in ethics, delivered by approved providers wherever available.

During enrolment, you can choose a special religious education option for your child from the school’s available approved providers. You can withdraw your child from special religious education by selecting alternative meaningful activities, or special education in ethics if it’s available.

You can update your preference by writing to the school or through the online form available at participating schools.
Visit the department’s website for more information about religion and ethics. 

Parents are able to choose between the following scripture providers at Balgowlah Heights:

  • Catholic Scripture
  • Protestant Scripture

At Balgowlah Heights students in Kindergarten to Year 6 may also choose to participate in an ethics class. 

Students electing not to participate in a scripture or ethics program undertake alternate meaningful activities such as reading.
