Ministry

The classroom teaching of Religion promotes an understanding of Catholic beliefs and practices in the context of providing Religious literacy and aims to incorporate content with the same demands, creativity and rigour of other Key Learning Areas. There is an emphasis on active learning and creative pedagogy that means all students should be able to access the learning at a variety of levels and through a variety of learning modes.

The skills acquired by the students in Religion will help them find meaning and excitement in learning about the story, experiences and teachings of the Catholic Christian tradition and will enable students to be more articulate and thoughtful about the Catholic Christian tradition.

New outreach and social justice initiatives have been incorporated into the Religious Education program with special emphasis on understanding and responding to the needs of Cambodia, and other issues of social justice around the world.
