Religious Education

We offer a Catholic Education which is based on Catholic Tradition, Gospel Values and child-centred pedagogy. The children participate in daily prayer, special liturgies and celebrate Mass at our parish church or in our school hall.

St Cecilia’s Catholic Primary School is a faith community where the Religious Education curriculum brings together many other disciplines and aspects of life. The teachers teach the fundamentals of the Catholic faith in an informative and interesting way that is relevant to learners of the 21st century.¬†

Religious Education forms part of the daily program. Teachers follow the Broken Bay K-12 Religious Education Curriculum developed as the central core of their classroom program.

Our Religious Education Curriculum identifies the Catholic school as a place where students are offered experiences of Catholic discipleship, and suggests ways that schools can promote these experiences in everyday school life. This syllabus describes the Aims, the Objectives and the expected Outcomes of classroom religious education in the diocese of Broken Bay. It also mandates the content and the progressive teaching and learning that takes place in classroom Religious Education from Kindergarten to the completion of school education.

The modules are resource packages developed from the syllabus. They contain the expected outcomes, and provide Biblical and Catechism references to support the teaching of the topic. As well, they provide theological and education background and suggest ways contemporary pedagogy can be incorporated into the teaching of Religious Education.
