candleReligious Education is at the heart of Catholic Education. It informs and influences all learning in the school, is integrated throughout the curriculum and is celebrated regularly. Sending a child to a Catholic school involves supporting this religious dimension.

At St Michael’s we believe that through Religious Education in our classrooms and in partnership with our parents and parish community, students will gain a knowledge and understanding of Jesus Christ the person and the traditions of the Catholic faith.

We believe that this knowledge and understanding must be engaged with contemporary social issues and the life experience of our students. Therefore we aim to make Religious Education alive and child centered by employing the best teaching methodologies, incorporating creative teaching strategies and linking the seven habits. We aim to sequence planned activities so that they reflect the Emmaus process.
