Religious Instruction​

Religious instruction is offered in Years 1 to 6 classrooms on Friday each week.

Ascot’s RI program is a cooperative program, meaning that it is run by volunteer religious instructors from a variety of local Christian churches. Many of our religious instructors have been associated with the school for a long time.

Instructors all work from a program authorised by the Department of Education and Training. At Ascot this program is called Connect, and families are billed for the student workbook via the term account.

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.

Students who do not participate in RI are provided with other instruction in a separate, supervised location. They receive work to do such as revision, wider reading, or completing unfinished work.

Parents are advised of any changes to the RI and other instruction programs to ensure they are able to make an informed decision about their child’s participation.
