Special Character & Religious Education

Through the special character and Religious education at our school, we have Jesus Christ as our focus. Our aim is to assist children to develop a relationship with God and to integrate their faith, life and culture. We provide opportunities for stewardship and contribution to our school and wider community.

A part of our Catholic Character we work to be the best we can in every aspect of life. Prayer is important to our daily life at school and active participation in church liturgies. The sacramental programme involves parents, school and parish.
Students will develop appropriate knowledge, skills, attitudes and values through teaching and learning experiences within the learning strands of:
God, Jesus Christ, The Holy Spirit, Church, Sacrament, Communion of Saints, Liturgical Year and Prayer

Our special Catholic character is an integral part of school life. Students participate in daily prayers and attend Mass weekly at school. It is expressed and developed through the building of positive partnerships within our kura and parish, and using our gifts for the service of the common good.

A Sacramental programme is offered at school for students who wish to further strengthen their faith and relationship with God.
