Religious Education

 

Religious Education Program

Religious Education is the prime Key Learning Area.  The school supports parents in fostering their child’s faith development through the Diocesan Syllabus “Sharing Our Story”.

 

The Diocesan Syllabus outlines the courses of study with desired outcomes and content structured in stages covering Years K to 12.  It develops Catholic beliefs, traditions and practices in a systematic fashion.  It is designed to engage the student’s mind and heart.  The key concepts covered are: God, Jesus, Church,  Sacraments, Scripture,  Christian Life and Prayer


Prayer

Parents are encouraged to pray regularly as a family.

Below are some ideas:

·         Teach your children to spend at least a few moments in morning and especially night prayer.

·         Have members of the family say Grace together at meal times. 

·          Teach them simple actions, e.g. genuflecting, making the Sign of the Cross.

·         Say the Rosary as a family. There are some good apps that are very helpful.

·         Attending SATURDAY NIGHT / SUNDAY MASS is a good time when all the members of God’s family come together to pray.  Take your children with you to Mass each Sunday.

 

The children will learn prayers at school and will be encouraged to pray as a class.  A morning assembly prayer program has been established with the Student Representative Council. All children are involved in whole school masses at least once each term.  Children in primary classes also attend Friday Mass at least once a term. The ‘Angelus’ is said by the school every day. A prayer to St Mary Mackillop of the Cross is said at every school assembly. The school leaders say an afternoon prayer daily and the School Prayer, every Monday morning.  Prayer forms an integral part of every school day.


Religious & Pastoral Programs

Faith experiences are offered to students of St Patrick’s through many avenues, including:

  • Monday morning whole school prayer
  • Daily prayer in the classroom
  • Class liturgies each Friday at whole school assembly
  • Primary students participation in Reconciliation liturgies
  • Whole school liturgies during Holy week, St Patrick's Feast day, Advent and Christmas
  • Year 6 retreat program

Sacramental Program


Sacramental Programs are Parish based.  Children are prepared for First Reconciliation, Confirmation and First Communion at St Patrick’s Cathedral if their families are parishioners.  Please consult your home parish bulletin for sacramental program dates. Any parent who has any questions with regard to the Sacramental Program for their child please contact the school’s Religious Education Coordinator through the school office.


Pastoral Care of Students

Pastoral care of students is a high priority at St Patrick's Primary and an important aspect of making all feel safe, valued and respected. This is supported through a number of programs:
