Religious education

Parents/caregivers in public schools have the right to have their children receive instruction in their preferred religious persuasion, where authorised teachers of that persuasion are available.

A special religious education program is available at the school and is run by authorised volunteers of approved religious persuasions.  

Below is the list of approved special religious education programs provided at the school for 2016. Additional details of Special Religious Education programs on offer at the school can be obtained from SRE providers.  Contact details of SRE program coordinators can be provided by the school if required.


  • Option 1 Catholic
  • Option 2 Islamic
  • Option 3 Protestant
  • Option 4 Hindu

Students continue in the same arrangement each year, unless a parent/caregiver has requested a change in writing. At any time, you have the right to change your SRE nomination or to withdraw your child from the nominated lessons. A note to the Principal will affect this change.

The religious education program at Burwood PS is conducted on Wednesdays 9.00am to 9.30am.
