Education in Life and Faith

An integral education of life and faith engages with the needs of all in the school community.


Teachers strive to understand the search for meaning in the lives of children and adolescents. They ensure that all teaching programs reflect Christian values.

The Religious Education program is of profound importance in assisting young people in the critical dialogue with culture as they search for meaning in their lives.

Leadership actions

School leaders actively and collaboratively promote, maintain and enhance an education in faith, and opportunities for faith development. For example they:

  • Ensure that education programs continue to reflect Christian values and principles based upon the dignity of the human person
  • Initiate and facilitate programs that help teachers to understand the development of life and faith in young people and themselves
  • Ensure that educative processes, e.g. assessment and reporting, contribute to the development of the whole person
  • Support diocesan programs in religious education, in particular through the established curriculum and in such things as sacramental policies
  • Support the work of those teaching religious education by, e.g. ensuring adequate resources and access to professional development
  • Initiate and carry out reviews to ensure that education programs continue to reflect Christian values and principles.
