Online access for religious and ethics education
Umina Beach Public School has given students access to new online curriculums being offered by approved providers of Special Religious Education and Special Education in Ethics, according to principal Ms Lyn Davise
These providers normally travel to schools to provide face-to-face student activities, but this service has been suspended, pushing their content into online programs, she said.
The school has made available five programs: All Faiths (Islamic, Jewish, Bahai and Hindu), Anglican, Catholic, Christian-based Faith and Primary Ethics.
Ms Davis said the programs aimed to educate families, parents, communities and carers as well as students, with a range of different faiths and lesson plans for students from kindergarten to high school available.
Access to the programs is provided through the Umina Beach Public School website at https://umina-p.schools.nsw.gov.au.
