Religious Life of the School

Our Christian values empower us to shape and enrich our changing world by living the gospel of Jesus Christ. Through participation in programmes such as the following, children are nurtured and affirmed in their faith and in their ability (experience) to be religious. Child led liturgies which celebrate Lent, Holy Week and special days such as Mother's Day, Father's day, ANZAC Day, Remembrance Day, Saint's feast days and Christmas School hosted parish masses Sacramental program which draws together the parish, school and parent body School and classroom prayer Social Justice Group which works for justice and care of others within the school life A whole school assembly is held once a week in the hall. The Year 6 children run this assembly as part of their role as school leaders and the Year 6 teacher assists them in this role. The purpose of the assembly is to share as a community the highlights of our week, to strengthen our sense of belonging, and experience a sense of inter connectedness. Over time a format has developed which undergoes refinement and includes prayer, National Anthem, Child of the Week, news and an opportunity for classes or individual children to share their work or achievements. Visitors sometimes address the assembly. The Child of the Week is chosen at random by the previous week’s child of the week. The purpose of this feature is to; Create a welcoming community Encourage a sense of quality, belonging and self-worth Promote opportunities for full development - spiritual, intellectual, physical, social and emotional Develop in students an awareness of the needs of others Celebrate the richness of our diverse community ​
