Curriculum

Religious Education is at the core of all our teaching and learning. It informs and influences all learning and is an integral component of all Key Learning Areas.

The Archdiocese of Sydney Religious Education Curriculum is provided through RE Online, providing teaching and learning opportunities for teachers to use with their students. The texts, "To Know Worship and Love" are used as a classroom resource to support the curriculum.

At St Michael's, as in all Catholic Systemic Schools and public schools in NSW, we follow the NSW Board of Studies Syllabus requirements for the education of children in NSW. The Board of Studies has a syllabus for each of the learning areas. Along with a defined aim, each syllabus has a set of objectives and outcomes, expressed in terms of knowledge and understandings, skills, values and attitudes. Since 2014, all schools in NSW have started implementing the NSW Syllabus for the Australian Curriculum.
