Primary and Secondary Faith Education classes follow the Religious Education Curriculum Framework, from the Educational Framework, Horizons of Hope, set by the Archdiocese of Melbourne.
Religious Education invites students to appreciate the value of Catholic faith and to respect the other faiths and worldviews, which permeate Australia’s diverse society.
Religious Education in a Catholic school aims to develop:
- appreciation and deep understanding of the richness of the Catholic Tradition
- ways to express the Gospel as alive and authentic
- explicit dialogue between Catholic and other faith traditions, with an openness to religious questions and religious interpretation of the world
- an awareness of the diversity in society and the cultures and lives of our students
Students and staff have many opportunities to engage in rich and meaningful experiences of prayer. Each homeroom begins their day with morning prayer, which includes the College Prayer, which is written in each year in response to our yearly College theme. A variety of other prayer and liturgy experiences throughout the year, includes weekly and whole College assemblies, class and whole school Masses and specific liturgies that highlight significant events in the liturgical calendar.
Our College also engage in social Justice activities which provide students with opportunities to deepen their understanding of a range of social issues and to develop empathy and understanding of a range of social issues.
