Religion and ethics

NSW schools offer special religious education and special education in ethics. Approved providers deliver these, where available.

Write to the school if you wish to withdraw your child from special religious education, sometimes known as scripture. Special education in ethics is an option for your primary-age child if you withdraw them from special religious education. For more information, visit Religion and ethics.


Scripture lessons are held on Wednesdays for students in Years 1 to 6. Lessons are 40 minutes in duration. At Lane Cove Public School students may attend Anglican, Catholic, Jewish, Islamic, Hindu or Baha'i scripture.

There are also ethics classes in some grades. If you do not want your child to attend a scripture lesson, a non-scripture group is supervised by a staff member in the school hall.

  • 9:05am-9:40 am for Years 5 and 6 
  • 9:45am-10:20am for Years 3 and 4 
  • 10:25am-11am for Years 1 and 2.
