Religious Education

The Religious Education Curriculum brings together the essential components of knowledge, understanding, appreciation and celebration of our rich tradition. The Religious Education Curriculum aims to lay the foundations for learning about and engaging with the mystery of God and the faith of the Church.

The Archdiocese of Sydney Religious Education Curriculum provides appropriate teaching and learning opportunities for the students and the Religious Education texts, To Know Worship and Love are used as a classroom resource to support the curriculum.

Another feature of the curriculum is the 'storytelling approach' which nurtures the natural capacity that young children have for curiosity, imagination and wonder. Scripture stories and stories of the tradition are key elements of the Religious Education Curriculum. Open questions, reflections and opportunities for exploration engage students with the story.
