Religious Education Curriculum

Religious Education & Faith-Based Teaching



Religious Education is central to the curriculum at St Vincent’s Primary School with a focus to:  

  • provide a happy, trusting and secure environment, which is above all Christian, so that the children can develop as confident and independent learners
  • accept the individuality of each person
  • encourage each person to reflect Christian values in their daily lives and activities
  • promote the spiritual, intellectual, physical, emotional and social development of each child
  • provide the child with the life skills necessary to approach the future with confidence
  • encourage an open and positive relationship with the wider community
  • develop in each person a respect for the dignity of self and others
  • foster an awareness of the need to respect our world
  • achieve each of these goals because Jesus is our model

The teaching programmes are mandated by the Bishops of Western Australia with lessons taught daily in Pre Primary through to Year Six. These lessons are complemented by prayer, liturgical singing, class and whole school Masses and liturgies of the Word, to which the parents and friends are invited.
