Religious Education

Through Religious Education our students develop knowledge and understanding of the teachings of Jesus and the traditions of the Catholic faith. The students have opportunities to reflect on their life experiences, explore Scripture and respond to God’s call.

Collaborative Learning Principle

Our Collaborative Learning Principle has a focus on working together.

New knowledge is created through building a collaborative culture and co-operative learning experiences. As such we plan, support and celebrate opportunities where members of the school community mutually learn from each other.

Reflective Learning Principle

Our Reflective Learning Principle has a focus on thinking about our learning.

Learning is enhanced when students are encouraged to think about and discuss their own learning. We enable our students to have ownership over their learning through negotiating tasks and personal goal setting. We encourage our students to have an active voice and a sensitive ear to the opinions expressed by others.

Connected Learning Principle

Our Connected Learning Principle has a focus on learning beyond the classroom.

Learning is meaningful and authentic when we engage our students in real world situations that develop global awareness and build upon our student’s prior knowledge.

Personalised Learning Principle

Our Personalised Learning Principle has a focus on catering to the individual. We differentiate learning in ways that take into account our student’s needs, circumstances and personal learning styles. We provide varied opportunities across all Key Learning Areas.
