If your child is having a birthday, they are welcome to bring in lolly pops or similar items. Please be aware that many children have allergies and are not allowed to eat cake with egg, gluten or items with traces of nuts. Please do not feel that you have to send anything in.

Please ensure that your child has fruit or vegetables only and nothing that is too messy/sticky, eg. oranges etc. They may prefer that you have it cut up and put in a container so that it is easier to eat.

Term Overview

Religious Education

Created by God: A Gift to Share

In this unit students will learn that they are created in the image and likeness of God and loved by God. The students will come to appreciate that they have been created by God to be free and creative and to engage with all of creation. The unit introduces the second story of creation in the Book of Genesis, which speaks of the creative free act of God, an outpouring of divine love and goodness, in which we are called to share.

The students will be encouraged to explore their own giftedness and identify how they can use their gifts for the good of all. They will explore God’s love, revealed in them, in others and in all creation.  The students will also look at ways they can give glory and praise to God for the wonderful gifts they have been given.


A Lent: A Time for Reaching out in Love

In this unit the students will explore Lent as a time of renewal. The unit examines the season of Lent as a time to reflect on ways we can change and follow Jesus more closely through prayer, fasting and almsgiving. In the Gospels we learn how Jesus gave himself for others. The unit concludes by providing students with the opportunity to reflect on the events of Holy Week, in preparation for the great celebration of the Easter Triduum and Easter season.
