On enrolment parents/carers will be given the SRE and SEE participation letter to complete and return. After the initial enrolment, notification of changes to a child's enrolment in SRE/SEE should be given to the office, in writing.

The following SRE classes are offered at Tambar Springs Public School:

Combined Christian SRE  is provided by the Anglican Diocese of Armidale. More information aboutAnglican Diocese SRE, including the authorised curriculum scope and sequence, please visit the  website https://www.armidaleanglicandiocese.com  .
