Religious instruction

Queensland state schools embrace a mul​titude 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.

RI informs students about the beliefs and values of a particular religion. It is delivered by volunteers of a faith group using instructional materials approved by that faith group. RI is required to be consistent with legislation and Department of Education policies and procedures.

All RI instructors must hold a blue card and participate in compulsory Student Protection and Code of Conduct training. RI instructors are only entitled to deliver the RI program outlined below. A school staff member will be present during the delivery of RI.

Participation in RI is not compulsory. Any student in Year 1 to Year 3 may participate in RI if a parent has provided written instructions to the school.

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 consent remains in effect unless the parent informs the school otherwise in writing.

A description of the RI available is provided below.

Christian Religious Instruction

Authorised program: CEP (Christian Education Publications) Connect

                                      Beginning with God


Aims and goals:

  • Giving children the opportunity to explore faith and values
  • To educate children about the Christian faith
  • To promote understanding and discussion of life issues in relation to biblical teaching

Lesson structure: Students participate in a half hour structured lessons, once per week

Parents of students participating in these programs will be advised if a faith group requires funds to cover the expense of materials used in RI.

Other Instruction

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:

  • 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.
