Catholic Identity

​​​"that they may have life" (Archdiocese of Brisbane)

Religious Education in a Catholic school:

  • provides one means by which students are assisted to develop their spiritual and moral capacities.
  • heightens students' awareness of the mystery which permeates life.
  • helps students to grow in their knowledge and understanding of God.
  • helps students to develop moral sensitivities and sense of responsibility.
  • helps students to develop self-worth.​​
  • helps students to communicate on religious matters.
  • helps students to appreciate the Catholic religious heritage and religious heritage of others.
  • helps provide students with opportunities to engage in practical projects designed to promote and support a just society.


​This school community believes that "all young Catholics, throughout their school years, should be provided with opportunities to participate in religious education suited to their age and circumstances."
