shutterstock_77073553As you may be aware there is currently a review of SRE and SEE taking place, and you are invited to give feedback to this review.

Why is the review being conducted?

In 2012 the NSW Legislative Council General Purpose Standing Committee No 2, chaired by the Hon Marie Ficarra MLC released a report on the Education Amendment (Ethics Classes Repeal) Bill 2011. This report recommended that Special Education in Ethics classes should continue in NSW government primary schools. The report made a number of recommendations aimed at improving the implementation and delivery of Special Religious Education and Special Education in Ethics.

Recommendation 14 of the report requires that ‘a future independent review of both ethics classes and SRE be conducted by appropriately qualified early childhood educational reviewers in 2014-2015’.

The review is being conducted by a consultancy company called ARTD.
