Faith Formation and Expanding Perspectives

Junior School

In the Junior School, Religious Education is part of the daily curriculum for all students. Formal religious education lessons are based on the Western Australian Religious Education units of work produced by Catholic Education Western Australia. Topics covered for each year level include important Sacraments, Prayer, Bible, Church, Jesus, Lent/Easter and Advent/Christmas. The knowledge component of this learning is assessed and included on semester reports.

The College support parents in the sacramental and faith development of their child through sacramental programs. Children are prepared for the Sacrament of Penance (Reconciliation) in Year 3, Eucharist (Holy Communion) in Year 4 and Confirmation in Year 6 at school and receive the Sacraments in accordance with Archdiocesan guidelines.

Additionally, Junior School students are exposed to positive opportunities of evangelisation through prayer, meditation, prayer services and other faith-based activities.
