Who can provide religious instruction?

Legislation allows any minister of a religious denomination or society, or an accredited representative of a faith group who has been approved by the Minister of Education (or state school principal as the Minister’s delegate), to provide religious instruction.

Religious instruction is not part of a teacher's or chaplain's duties. However, if a chaplain or a teacher works part-time, they may choose to provide religious instruction in their own time, outside of their scheduled work hours.
