At Sefton High School, SRE is delivered once a week on Monday during periods 2 or 3 for Years 7-10 whose parents have advised us in writing that they wish their child to participate.
On enrolment, parents / carers will be given the SRE participation letter to consider, complete and return. After the initial enrolment, notification of changes to a child's enrolment in SRE can only be made by the parent, in writing, given to the office.
The following providers offer classes at Sefton High School:
the Islamic Council of NSW provides Islamic SRE
the Islamic Charity Projects Association (ICPA) provides Islamic SRE
the Sydney Anglican Diocese provides Christian SRE.
Students who wish to attend these Religious Education classes must have their parent's written permission. Only students who signed permission may attend SRE instruction. Parents need to be aware that future withdrawal must be made in writing to the school.
Due to the small numbers of participating students, those students who are participating in SRE leave their normal classes at the designated time and attend SRE class in a separate space and are supervised by the authorised representative of the respective authorised provider. Sefton High School staff do not attend these SRE classes.
Students not participating remain in their normal timetabled classes with their teachers and participate in meaningful activities such as literacy and numeracy tasks, revision and study.

We, the proud community of Sefton High School, would like to recognise the Darug nation, the traditional custodians of this land, and pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging. Their everlasting legacy serves to remind us of the bond that we all share with the land and our promise to uphold the Sefton tradition of Sincerity, Scholarship and Service by caring for the environment.
