Religious Education

As a Catholic School, our students receive lessons in Religious Education on a daily basis and have multiple opportunities to participate in class liturgies and whole school masses.
One of the most important elements of our Religious Education program is the celebration of the Sacraments. The programs involve detailed preparation so the children can understand the importance of the commitment they are making in receiving the Sacraments.

  • Students in Year 3 receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation (Penance)
  • Students in Year 4 receive the Sacrament of First Holy Communion (Eucharist)
  • Students in Year 6 receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.

Your support of these key events is absolutely critical. We encourage you to visit our events Calendar to take note of the key dates relevant to each of the Sacramental programs.
