This is an optional program of study that runs for an hour each fortnight. It is facilitated by the SRE Waratah High Board run by combined churches in the Callaghan Education Pathways local area. The approved curriculum is called "Think Faith (Stage 4-5)"

There is a Special Religious Education participation letter to complete and return. You can choose for your child to participate or opt out by simply notifying the school in writing by email.
