Religion and ethics

Parents/caregivers of students in public schools have the right to have their children receive instruction in their preferred religious persuasion, where authorised teachers of that persuasion are available.

Special Religious Education (SRE) takes place every week for students in Years 7 – 10 on a Tuesday afternoon from 2.33pm – 3.15pm. A student’s SRE preference is requested at the time of enrolment and remains in place unless the school is advised otherwise by the parent/caregiver in writing. Parents/ caregivers have the right to change their son’s SRE participation status at any time in writing.

We offer the following classes:

All organisations offering classes at North Sydney Boys High School are on the Department of Education’s list of approved providers. Contact details of the relevant program coordinators can be provided by the school if required. The curriculum for each provider can be found by clicking on the name of the provider above.

The school also offers meetings run by the Inter School Christian Fellowship (Australia) (ISCF) every Friday lunchtime. Students attending Friday ISCF meetings must have the written permission of their parent/caregiver. A member of the teaching staff is always present during these meetings

Currently, there is no provision for Special Ethics Education (SEE) in secondary schools.
