Religious Education

Every Catholic school needs to encourage its students to reflect upon the Christian message by helping them to relate it to their daily lives and aspirations and to understand what it means to be a follower of Christ in Australia today. The goal of Catholic education is for all to learn the story of Jesus, so that young people grow knowledge of the world, life and humanity, illuminated by faith.
Religious Education is integral to the Catholic curriculum and is the first priority in Catholic schools. It strengthens the students' experiences of Catholic ritual and practices, reinforcing Gospel values, the life and message of Jesus Christ.

RELIGIOUS EDUCATION PROGRAM

The Religious Education program taught at St Augustine is developed by the Bishop of the Archdiocese of Perth. It is part of our daily learning in each grade PP – Year 6. The Perth Archdiocesan Religious Education Units of Work are the prime teaching tool.
Kindergarten, Pre-primary and Year 1 students will take part in at 15 least minutes of Religious Education per day. Year 2- 6 students will have at least 30 minutes per day.
Students can also develop their faith and spirituality through participation in reflection, prayer and liturgical singing. We celebrate our Catholic Faith through a variety of school activities.
