PublishingPageContent

Queensland state schools embrace a multitude of cultural, religious and non-religious beliefs. Under the Education (General Provisions) Act 2006, schools are to provide Religious Instruction (RI) if approached by a faith group seeking to provide RI and students of that faith attend the school.

Participation in RI is not compulsory.  Any student (except Prep students) may participate in RI if a parent has provided written instructions 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:

  • Positive Behaviour for Learning activities
  • independent assignment work (years 5 and 6)
  • 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.
