Class Religion Lessons

Religious Education is the first Learning Area in St Joseph’s Catholic school curriculum. It is a learning area which focuses on the knowledge and understanding of the Gospel as it is handed on by the Catholic Church.

Staff at St Joseph’s School respect parents as the prime educators of their children, particularly in the area of faith education. Religion lessons complement the work of parents, school community and the Parish in assisting children to develop their faith and knowledge.

The current K-12 Religious Education Units of Work, which our school uses, cover a range of concepts and topics in a progressive and developmental manner. All St Joseph’s students participate in daily Religion lessons. The Religious Education programme aims to help students learn the teachings of the Gospels proclaimed by the Catholic Church and to develop a sense of the nature of Christianity and of how Christians are trying to live their lives. Religious Education outcomes are taught, developed and resourced with the same commitment as all other learning areas.
