Religious Education, as part of the Church’s mission of evangelisation, shares in the task of spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ. The Religious Education curriculum aims to assist students to make sense of life in the light of God’s revelation. It is our task as Catholic educators to help our students access the Word of God in the Scriptures, the Church’s living Tradition, and in their own lives and experience. In doing so, we prepare our students to celebrate and respond to God’s Word in their lives.
Religious Education is taught in the context of a partnership between the home, school and parish and is supported by the resource books To Know, Worship and Love.
Parents are encouraged to become actively involved with the Religious Education Program through:
Children are prepared for the Sacrament of Confirmation in Year Three (usually Term Two) and the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist in Year Four (usually in Term One and Three respectively).
Children from Catholic families in Years 5-6 who have not previously received the Sacraments of Confirmation, Reconciliation and Eucharist are also given the opportunity for preparation time in order to receive them.
