Religion and ethics

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

The following options are available at Eschol Park Public School.

  • Catholic
  • Protestant
  • Islamic

A parent/carer may at any time notify the school in writing that they wish to change their decision. Students will continue the same arrangements as the previous year, unless a parent/carer has requested a change in writing.

Students not attending special religious education, sometimes known as scripture, are given supervised alternative meaningful activities. 


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.
