Religious Education

Religious Education is a lifelong process.

  Its foundations are laid in the home and built within the school/parish community.

The Catholic School plays an important part in this lifelong quest.  Its first contribution to the student’s Religious Education is through the culture and climate of overall school life.  The  religious dimension is present everywhere in the school: playground, assemblies and the  classrooms themselves where every key learning area contributes to a genuinely religious way of understanding the world.

The Religious Education Curriculum in the Parramatta Diocese is based on “Sharing Our Story”.  The task of the teacher is to foster knowledge and understanding that is appropriate to each learner’s stage of development.  The development of relevant attitudes and skills is also  important, along with a growing commitment to Christian values.  More information on the Sharing  Our Story Syllabus is available through www.ceo.parra.catholic.edu.au

An active partnership of home, parish and school plays an  important part, particularly in regard to the preparation and  celebration of the Sacraments.

Sacramental Program

Initiation into the whole life of the Church is a gradual process that takes place within the Community of the    faithful.  The whole community is responsible for passing on its faith, its story, its values, its traditions to the next generation; and introducing its children to the sacramental life of the Church.

The preparation of the Sacraments of Reconciliation, First Eucharist and Confirmation are parish based.  The parish based, family centred process is to provide opportunities for   parents to come together to inquire and reflect upon the faith into which their children are being initiated.

 A sacramental team has been established by the parish to assist in co-ordinating the  preparation for the Sacraments.  It is the responsibility of parents in conjunction with the Parish Priest and Sacramental Team to assess the readiness of the child for Sacraments.

Information sessions are held during the year and you are required to attend if you believe your child is ready to receive the next Sacrament.
