Religious Instruction

Religious instruction (RI) is offered at our school and is conducted on Tuesday afternoons at either 2:00 pm or 2:30 pm.
The faith group that provides religious instructors to deliver an authorised program is listed below:
Arrangements for programs
Participating faith group/s
Name of authorised program
Cooperative program
·         Non-denominational Christian Religious Instruction Program.
·        Connect (CEP – Christian Education Program)
 
Parents of child/ren participating in this program will be advised if a faith group requires funds to cover the expense of materials used in RI.
Students are allocated to RI based on information provided by parents on the completed Application for Student Enrolment unless other written instructions have been provided to the school.
Note: This information remains operational unless the parent informs the school otherwise in writing.
Students who are not participating in RI will be provided with other instruction in a separate supervised location. Other instruction must relate to part of a subject area already covered in class and may include, but is not restricted to:
·           personal research and/or assignments
·           revision of class work such as creative writing or literacy and/or numeracy activities which could include online programs currently accessed by the students of that school (i.e. Mathletics, Reading Eggs)
·           wider reading such as independent reading appropriate to the student.
 
Parents will be advised of any changes to the RI and other instruction programs to ensure they are able to make an informed decision on their child’s participation.
