A Special Religious Education (SRE) program is run by authorised volunteers of approved religious persuasions.

Below is the list of approved special religious education programs provided at the school for 2019. Additional details of SRE 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.
