Special Religious Education (SRE) and Special Education in Ethics (SEE)

At Mimosa Public School, time is set aside (over different times for different years) each Wednesday for SRE and SEE. 

Year 5 and 6      11:40am – 12:20pm        

Year 3 and 4      12:20pm – 1:00pm

Years K-2           1:50pm – 2:30pm

The program is delivered by approved providers who train volunteers to teach the lessons. All volunteers have verified Working with Children Check clearances, are cross referenced on the Department’s database and have confirmation that they have met relevant requirements under the Act. They are trained and supported by their approved organisation. The curriculum they deliver has been authorised by the Department.

The following SRE classes are offered at Mimosa: 

If you do not wish your child to attend SRE, they will attend Non-Scripture. Students who attend Non-Scripture can read or complete quiet, independent activities. There may be an option for students electing Non-Scripture to attend lessons in Ethics, provided we have trained volunteers to teach these classes. Please note, priority for Ethics is given to children of Ethics volunteers. 

Your child will continue in the same arrangement each year, unless you request a change in writing. At any time you have the right to change your nomination or withdraw your child from the nominated lessons. Any notification of changes to a child's enrolment in SRE/SEE should be sent in writing to the school office.
