Religious Education Curriculum

square re edu

Religious Education is an essential component of the school curriculum. Although Religious Education is regarded as one of the school's Key Learning Areas, it is not simply a subject that is taught, it is an integral, living part of our daily lives at St Joseph’s Primary School and beyond.

Religious Education is at the heart of who we are.  Through our interactions with one another; our daily prayers; our loyalty to the traditions and doctrines of the Catholic Church and our genuine desire to be a community who reflects the values of Christ, as we educate children in their Faith.

The RE Curriculum in Wollongong has been the result of a joint collaboration between the Diocese of Wollongong and Archdiocese of Sydney, with advisory support from the Dioceses of Armidale and Lismore. This collaboration has produced the Years 3-6 units and now the K-2 units of the curriculum.

Our task as educators in Catholic schools is to provide quality Catholic learning and teaching opportunities for our students and the RE curriculum documents bring together the richness of the tradition of the Catholic faith and culture with the best of contemporary methods of teaching and resources.

The resource book To Know, Worship and Love is one resource that is a major support and tool for our new curriculum.
