SRE - Special Religious Education

What is SRE?

Special Religious Education (SRE) (also known as Scripture) has been part of NSW schooling since 1849. The current NSW Education Act requires that time be allocated for religious education in all government schools and, in the case of Christian SRE, that this teaching be delivered by authorised persons representing the Christian faith.

SRE allows teachers authorised by approved providers, usually from local churches, to enter Government Schools during school hours, and teach about their distinctive beliefs, values and practices. The number of hours and days set aside for SRE each week is determined by each individual school, but there are minimum requirements set by the Department of Education.

Power to Change supports local churches and their communities in making SRE available, and ensuring SRE is delivered in a cohesive, professional and engaging manner.

Why is SRE important?

Special Religious Education (SRE) plays a vital role in the education of NSW public school students, helping them form personal, moral and ethical frameworks and to nurture their faith while at school.

SRE is a wonderful opportunity for students in school to ask and explore the big questions about life, God, purpose and our responsibility in the world.

It is a place where students can discover truths and values that can give meaning, hope, personal worth, security and direction in life.
