Special religious education

Religious instruction is offered at Killarney Heights High School. This is offered in sessions throughout the year. 

Parents may select either a choice of combined Christian or non-scripture. If students are in non-scripture they will either do revision or private study.

There is the choice of:

  • combined Christian scripture
  • non-scripture.

Parents may also choose not to send their child to scripture. This will involve activities such as private study and reading. There will be no formal instruction at this time.

Written permission must be given to opt out of any of the groups by signing the special religious education letter.

Student services

Student portal

Student portal is a one-stop shop for everything our students need. Using the same username and password they use to log onto the school desktop machines, students can access their timetable, assessment marks, attendance history and reports from anywhere, at any time. They can also import their school timetable to their preferred calendar. 


We use moodle as our learning management system. Using moodle, students can access worksheets and activities at home via the Internet. Teachers may also ask students to submit work via this system. To log on, students use the same username and password used to log onto the school desktops.
