Special Religious Education at St George Girls High School

At St George Girls High School Special Religious Education (SRE) is delivered on a Thursday Period 1 (8:45am - 9:35am) four times per school term in Terms 1, 3 and 4 during Weeks 2, 4, 6 and 8 and in Term 2 during Weeks 1, 5, 7 and 9.

On enrolment parents/carers will be given the SRE participation letter to complete and return. After the initial enrolment, notification of changes to a child's enrolment in SRE should be given to the Deputy Principal (Curriculum) in writing.

Students will continue the same arrangement as the previous year, unless a parent/carer has requested a change in writing
