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.

At Cambridge Gardens Public School,  Scripture is offered on Thursdays in the middle session. We offer Anglican scripture and Catholic scripture. We also have non-scripture alternatives.

Catholic scripture is provided by St Joseph's Catholic Parish.

This Parish belongs to the Catholic Diocese of Parramatta, which is an approved provider of SRE, as listed on the NSW Department of Education website:

Anglican Scripture is provided by Cambridge park Anglican Church.

Anglican SRE is provided by Anglican teachers who are authorised and trained by the Anglican Diocese of Sydney who are an apporoved SRE provider. Teachers provide education in Christian beliefs and practices for children in Kindergarten to Year 6. The SRE curriculum is "Connect"  teaching from Cycle C in 2019, produced by Christian Education Publications. Research shows that SRE contributes to students' wholistic education as it nurtures their spiritual wellbeing. For more information about the curriculum used visit whysre.com.au
