Religious Education

Religious Education seeks to develop the religious literacy of students in light of the Catholic Christian tradition, so that they might participate critically and authentically in contemporary culture. The subject is anchored in a vision that is personal and public, reflective and active, nurturing and transformative. Religious Education comprises two complementary dimensions - teaching people to be religious and teaching people about Religion. Through engagement with both dimensions of Religious Education, students are challenged to be authentic witnesses to the mission of Jesus Christ in the world.

Teaching people about Religion focuses on utilizing​ a range of learning processes and resources that are designed to develop assessment capable learners. The Religion Curriculum involves four interrelated strands: Sacred Texts, Belief, Church, and Christian Life, all of which are integrated across a variety of topics:

  • The Mystery of God
  • World Religions - their core belief and practices
  • The God of Hebrew and Christian Scriptures
  • Christian Spiritual Writings
  • Personal and Communal Prayer
All students will be taught from the Year 10 Religious Education curriculum to prepare them for their studies in the Year 11 and 12 Religious Education subjects on offer at the College.
