Religious Education


Religious Education Curriculum

Religious Education (RE) follows the Religious Education Curriculum of the Diocese of Parramatta. The major concepts studied are God, Jesus, Church, Sacraments, Scripture, Christian Life and Prayer. Learning in one Stage builds on the learning in previous Stages of schooling. Because students are prepared for the Sacraments at the school, some RE units in Years 1 and 2 are modified to cater for the content which is to be taught.

Liturgical Life

St Patrick's Primary is proud to have a very active liturgical life. Feast days, holy days and special events (e.g. Grandparents Day) are celebrated with whole school Masses. The Ash Wednesday Mass brings together past pupils attending local high schools, parents and present students. Classes are regularly rostered to prepare Masses held on Wednesday mornings. Students lead the singing to bring joy to each celebration of the Eucharist. Reconciliation is offered to each class, from Years 2 to 6, on a rostered basis each week.

The staff gathers each Tuesday morning to pray and share their spirituality. Parents join staff and children in prayer at Monday assemblies, where the needs of the school and wider community are brought to heart and mind.

Social Justice

Students and staff of St Patrick's Primary are aware of the injustices in our world. Students generously donate money to Project Compassion, the St Vincent de Paul Society and Caritas Australia's Children's Mission. The school staff also gives donations to various charities throughout the year. 

St Patrick's school and parish work in close cooperation to fundraise at the annual fete.

Sacramental Program

Sacramental preparation is undertaken by the school, with parents meeting with teachers and the parish priest to share their faith. 

Students take part in various religious experiences which help their understanding of church traditions. During Holy Week, children prepare and celebrate the Easter Story. Parents are always present to experience the faith-filled moments of their children. During times of sadness, such as serious illness or tragedy, prayer reflections lead children to express their faith in God's mercy and love.
