Special Religious Education (SRE) Participation in 2022
A feature of the public education system in NSW is the opportunity to provide time in class for education in ethics, faith and morality from a religious or non-religious perspective at the choice of parents. In accordance with Department of Education policy, SRE classes will again be offered to Year 7, Year 8, Year 9 and Year 10 students of Leumeah High School in 2022.
Inter-denominational Christian classes will be presented by Mr Adam Moss once per fortnight for Year 7 and Year 8 and once per month for Year 9 and Year 10 on Thursdays throughout the year. Mr Moss has had extensive experience teaching SRE and has also completed Theological studies. He will be teaching on behalf of the local churches of Campbelltown (including Anglican, Baptist, and Presbyterian). Mr Moss has been authorised by the Campbelltown Area High Schools Ministry Board to deliver the Think Faith curriculum. Further information about the SRE program is available from the website https://whysre.com.au. Scripture timetables will be published for students and parents prior to the start of lessons each term, and posted on the school’s website and via SkoolBag.
A parent/carer may at any time notify the school in writing that they wish to change their decision about whether or not their student participates in SRE. Students in Year 8 will continue the same arrangement as the previous year, unless a parent/carer requests a change in writing.

Students who do not attend SRE lessons are given supervised alternative meaningful activities during the allocated SRE lesson time.
