NSW schools offer special religious education. A special religious education program (SRE) is available at Canterbury Boys for:
SRE occurs for Years 7 to 10 students during period one each Thursday morning. If your child is in SRE, the Department of Education policy states that no new curriculum learning can occur. Our boys participate in the schools wide reading program if they are not in SRE. Students continue in the same arrangement each year, unless a parent or caregiver requests 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 is needed for this to occur.
