SRE

‘Face-to-face Special Religious Education (SRE), Special Education in Ethics (SEE) and Voluntary student activities of a religious nature in schools (VSA) will not be available until schools resume normal operations (phase 4). This includes the use of interactive online media such as Google Classrooms, Skype or Zoom.’

SRE Organisation

At Engadine High School, SRE runs for 1 period once a fortnight for Year 7 and 8.

SRE Teachers authorised by local SRE Providers facilitate these lessons.

Students who have opted out of SRE are supervised by their classroom teachers. During this time, these students are reading or doing quiet study. They are not engaged in school curriculum activities.

Currently, Special Ethics Education (SEE) does not run.
