Religious Education

From the first moment that a student sets foot in a Catholic school, he or she ought to feel welcomed into a new environment - one illuminated by the light of faith, and having its own unique characteristics.

The Catholic tradition provides the context for the praying, believing, living and celebrating of the believer.  Students are invited into a living encounter with the beliefs, values, symbols, rituals, faith and community of the Catholic Church.

Christ is at the centre of Catholic schooling.  The gospel values form the basis of all our actions.

Every facet of life within the Catholic school provides the opportunity for students to experience the gracious activity of God.  This vivid expression is evident in the relationships among all members of the school community.

Our Catholic Values

The entire curriculum in a Catholic school provides the opportunity for students to be formed in a religious tradition that is rich in values.

The Catholic school is aware of the importance of the gospel teaching as transmitted through the Catholic Church. What does all this mean?

  • Our understanding and belief in the human person
  • Sacramentality - God is present in all things
  • Community - we need to be in right relationship with one another
  • Tradition - we have a story to tell
  • Rationality - faith seeks understanding
