55 Additional religious instruction


This section applies if the Minister is satisfied that—


the majority of the parents of students attending a State school wish their children to receive religious instruction additional to that provided under section 54; and


the additional religious instruction is not to the detriment of the normal curriculum of the school.


Despite sections 54 and 93, the Minister may, after consulting the school’s board, authorise the additional religious instruction to the extent and subject to any conditions that the Minister thinks fit.
