Religion and ethics

NSW schools offer special religious education (SRE) and special education in ethics. Approved providers deliver these, where available. For more information, visit Religion and ethics.

At Cardiff High School, SRE is delivered on Tuesday fortnightly. SRE is delivered to Year 7 and Year 8 students one period per timetable cycle.

SRE is an OPT IN subject. Students must return a signed opt in note to be enrolled in this subject. Notes are provided to students upon acceptance of enrolment in Year 7.

Thanks to the support of the Combined Churches of the Hunter our school is able to offer classes in Special Religious Education (SRE), which is not linked to any specific denomination.

This program allows students the chance to discuss, question, think and ultimately make decisions for themselves regarding the Christian faith. Students are not required to identify as Christian to participate.

SRE classes are delivered by Ben Waters (provider: Baptist Union of NSW) using the WBCEA Discovery Curriculum. Further information may be found at and
