Religious Education

Religious education begins at birth and continues throughout our lives. It helps us and our children reflect upon ourselves, our world and our God, in the context of our personal life experiences, the sacred scriptures, and the church and its traditions.

As a result of this reflection, we are better able to come to know God more personally and respond to our relationship with God through prayer, our participation in the liturgy and our daily lives.

At St Bernadette’s school we strive to present our children with a lived experience of a loving faith community. We help them to reflect upon their experiences of God, their loving parent, and also to learn from the model for living that Jesus gave us. This is the same way parents pass on their faith to their children at home.

The children are encouraged to express their insights and understandings of God through artistic expression, personal and shared prayer, participation in the liturgy, and their daily Christian living.

At the centre of our curriculum sits Religious Education, which is a core part of our learning. The Religious Education program we follow is called Sharing Our Story. This document is based on the theology, scripture, doctrine and tradition of the Catholic Church and is related to the child’s life experiences.

Religious education is very much a shared process. This started with parents and their child in the setting of the family. The teachers now continue the process and share with the children the special moments when God has touched their lives. They gently help each child recognise the face of God in the ‘magic’ moments of daily living.
