Religious Education


The Religious Education classroom is one place among many in the Catholic School, where students are invited into a living encounter with the beliefs, values, symbols, rituals, faith and community of the Catholic Church. Religious Education complements the work of parents as the first educators of their children and recognises the primary role played by them and parishes in the faith development process. Religious Education is complemented in many varied ways by all learning areas in the curriculum and the other elements of school life, such as liturgy, sacraments, prayer, retreats, pastoral care, and outreach initiated by the school.
