Religious Education

 

Religious Education begins at our Baptism and continues throughout our lives. Religious Education 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.

Our Religious Education program Sharing Our Story is integral to all that we do within our school. We aim to lead the students to a better understanding of their own Catholic tradition and emphasise the influence of the Holy Spirit at work in the lives of the students.

The Religious Education program at Holy Trinity values the children's life experiences and encourages them to discuss, question, make judgments and decisions. Children are encouraged to express their new insights through actions and are given opportunities to reflect and respond at appropriate levels. Children regularly engage in prayer and liturgical celebrations.

Children are taught formal prayers of the Church.  Young children are also helped to speak to God in their own simple way. All students stop work at 12pm each day and pray the Angelus.

Liturgical life of the school

Major features of the liturgical life of the school include:

  • a liturgy committee made up of Year 6 students
  • whole school masses for significant occasions such as the Opening of school year, Catholic Schools Week, Feast Days and Mothers' Day
  • student and parent participation in liturgies
  • daily class prayers and assembly prayers organised by students
  • liturgical celebrations held for Lent, Easter and Advent
  • staff prayer each Friday

Faith experiences

The whole school gather for prayer each Monday morning at assembly. Children participate in daily prayer in the classroom and in many classes the children are responsible for organising liturgies.
