Code of Conduct

This Code of Conduct (Code) underpins the work of all those involved in the Ministry of Special Religious Education in NSW public schools that form part of the Catholic Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle. 


The aim of the Code is to guide the SRE volunteer to a better understanding of standards of behaviour which are currently expected by society in general, and the DEC and the Diocese in particular.


This Code does not attempt to provide a complete list of acceptable and unacceptable behaviours but rather a broad framework to assist with ministry in SRE.


The Code also outlines how we can all take responsibility for our own conduct and work together with others.
