Religious Education

This curriculum is designed so that students have opportunities to develop:

  • a personal relationship with Jesus Christ
  • understanding and appreciation of the religious beliefs, values and practices of Christianity and the ways that Catholics live these out
  • respect and appreciation for the religious beliefs, attitudes and values of others
  • age-appropriate skills to research, discuss, reflect on and critique religion in an informed, intelligent and sensitive manner.

Learning about religion promotes the holistic development of the students with an emphasis on the spiritual, moral, intellectual, social, emotional and aesthetic dimensions of life. It can help students, whatever their individual religious beliefs and backgrounds, to develop their knowledge, understanding, values and skills thereby assisting them to participate effectively in Australian society.

The Religion Curriculum is organised under the interrelated content strands of Beliefs, Sacraments, Morality and Prayer.
