Department of Education's Religious Education Implementation Procedures, last updated December 2016, now require parental permission for students who participate in voluntary student activities of a religious nature in schools. Before participating in any of the above mentioned activities, a student must present the permission slip, signed by a parent or carer, to Mr Bailey. Group leaders will maintain a list of all students from whom a permission note has been received. Permission will remain effective unless a letter of withdrawal is received from the student's parent or carer.
