The teaching of Religious Education is founded on the teachings of Jesus in the Gospels and leads the children to a deeper understanding of God’s presence with us.
We offer a contemporary Religious Education program that has an inclusive approach, respecting other cultures and religions. Students and staff are invited to put their faith into action in a number of ways:
In the Junior School, our creative sacramental program offers Baptism, Reconciliation, Confirmation and Eucharist, which is run in conjunction with the Mount Barker/Strathalbyn Parish.
Our faith is celebrated through meaningful liturgical celebrations and developing stewardship of earth through our work in the College garden and sustainability.
The Sacramental Program is aimed at our Year 4 students to prepare them for the Sacraments of Confirmation and First Eucharist. The program is a joint partnership between the College and the local Catholic Parish. It is ‘Parish based and school supported’. The Year 4 teachers work closely with the Parish to assist the students in the preparation for this special time.
