Religious Education is an integral part of Catholic Education. At St Mary’s School, we promote Christian values and encourage these to be evident throughout all learning and social situations.
The Religious Education curriculum is based on the Archdiocese of Brisbane program and focuses on four strands:
- Christian Life
- Sacred Texts
Children are given an opportunity to build on their relationship with God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit through a variety of activities and experiences. They are brought to an awareness of themselves, of others, of the world and the Christian faith and tradition. They also participate in:
- Daily prayers
- Christian meditation
- School masses
Children are able to receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist and Confirmation. Parents wishing for their child to receive these sacraments are asked to contact with the Parish Coordinator or School Office. The sacraments are usually celebrated at the end of Term 2, however dates vary according to the availability of the Bishop.
