Learning & Teaching

 

Religious Education

Religious Education is a core Key Learning Area at Holy Family Primary and lessons are based on the diocesan curriculum Sharing Our Story. As a Catholic school we teach the doctrine of the Catholic Church and do our best to live the values of the Gospel. Prayer is integral to life at Holy Family.

  • We start each day as a community in prayer, asking for God’s blessing on all, particularly the children.
  • We celebrate Mass regularly, sometimes as a whole school and sometimes in small groups.
  • During the month of October, we pray a decade of the Rosary as a school.
  • Staff pray as a group each Friday morning before school.
  • Prayer is integral to class lessons.
  • We support Project Compassion each Lent and reach out in other ways to those less fortunate than ourselves.

At Holy Family, we are proud of our commitment to our faith and welcome all who want to share this commitment with us.
