square13The Religious Education Curriculum is a joint collaboration between the Dioceses of Wollongong, Armidale and Lismore and the Archdiocese of Sydney. It contributes to the catechetical and evangelising mission of the Church and exists to enable young people to understand, appreciate and celebrate the richness of the Catholic Tradition. It enables young people to see and respond to God in their lives supporting them in their lifelong journey in faith.

The Religious Education curriculum stimulates and challenges students in their understanding of Scripture and Tradition, their engagement with symbol and ritual, and their ability to engage in critical thinking and moral reasoning.

The richness of the tradition of Catholic faith and culture and the best of contemporary pedagogies comes together in the Religious Education curriculum which is supported by the To Know, Worship and Love books and resources.

Children experience formal Religious Education each day based upon the Religious Education Syllabus approved for use in the Diocese of Wollongong.

The formation of Christian values underpins the entire school program.  Specific programs of Personal Development and Human Sexuality, within the PD Health PE Syllabus are conducted each year.
