SRE in 2021

2021 SRE Classes

Special Religious Education (SRE) is offered to all students, Years 7-10. This will be in the form of a 2 Period seminar once a term. Information will be provided when seminars are organised. Students must return a signed permission note to attend any SRE activity. Parents may withdraw their child from SRE at any time by writing to the school. Forster Campus staff do not supervise SRE. Instead they will be running alternative meaningful activities in normal classes for students who do not attend SRE.

SRE Providers
