Religious Education is at the heart of both the formal and informal Catholic school curriculum.
Our schools are characterised by a high proportion of Catholic teachers and students, with a visible Catholic symbolic culture and active sacramental and liturgical practices. The values, ideals and challenges of the Gospel, embodied in the person of Jesus Christ, find explicit expression in the curriculum and ethos of Catholic schools, as do the teachings and traditions of the Catholic Church.
The challenge for teachers is to engage students in making sense and meaning of their everyday lives in the light of the teachings of Jesus Christ and the traditions of the Catholic Church.
The Catholic Identity Unit provides information and resources to support teachers in fulfilling this challenge.
