Religion and ethics

A feature of the public education system in NSW is the opportunity to provide time in class for education in ethics, faith and morality from a religious or non-religious perspective at the choice of the parent/carer. 

A parent/carer may at any time notify the school in writing that they wish to change their decision.  Students will continue the same arrangement as the previous year, unless a parent/carer has requested a change in writing.  All classes are supervised by Harbord Public School teachers.

At our school parents/carers are able to choose one of the following classes for the children:

  1. Protestant Scripture based on the Anglican curriculum or the Uniting Church curriculum
  2. Catholic Scripture 
  3. Ethics classes

Students whose parents elect not to send them to any of these classes attend non-Scripture.

During the COVID-19 pandemic relition and ethics are available online until school resumes normal operations:

  1. Protestant home school lessons
  2. Catholic home school lessons
  3. Ethics home school lessons
