Dear School Principal,
I, (INSERT NAME), parent of (INSERT CHILD NAME), am concerned about the potential
exposure of my child to sexual or sexualized content in the school curriculum or activities. Such
content conflicts with our cultural and religious beliefs. I request that my child not be involved in
any topics related to sexual health, sexuality, sexual orientation, or LGBTQIA+ content. I want to
bring your attention to the guidelines from the NSW Department of Education, emphasizing
parental notification and the right to withdraw from sensitive sessions.
I have the following requests:
- Withdraw my child from any program or subject related to the mentioned topics.
- Prohibit educators from discussing private areas or puberty with my child as I have precedence

- Exclude my child from activities associated with sex and sexuality, such as making rainbow
flags or participating in pride-related events.

beginning of the academic year for reasonable notice.
I appreciate your cooperation and request an acknowledgement of my concerns, an outline of
the school's policies, and assurance that my child will have the right to withdraw from such
lessons or activities, with reasonable alternative learning that respects their dignity. Please
communicate with me via email or letter.
Thank you for your attention.
