Education in Faith

At St Mary's the Religious Education Curriculum promotes education in life and faith and provides students with an opportunity to learn and practice the values that the Catholic Church teaches. Children come to know the traditions of our faith through a variety of innovative and engaging methods which supports our commitment to an Inquiry approach to teaching.

Sacramental Program​

At St Mary’s, we acknowledge and support parents and families as the primary educators of their child’s faith and their child’s sacramental journey, which begins at Baptism. It is through the Sacraments that God’s love and presence are made real and celebrated. Most children prepare to celebrate the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist and Confirmation during their primary school years.

The Sacramental Program incorporates workshop and faith evenings with both parents and children, family masses and other parish events and celebrations. The school supports this program with the implementation of the Religious Education Curriculum which ensures that the children are properly prepared for their Sacraments.

St Mary’s celebrates the Sacrament of Reconciliation in Year 3, the Sacrament of First Eucharist in Year 4 and the Sacrament of Confirmation in Year 6.
