Religion and ethics

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.

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

  • Catholic Scripture
  • Greek Orthodox 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 scipture or ethics program undertake alternate meaningful activities such as reading.
