Religious Education

Religious Education has a mandated and formal curriculum for classroom learning and teaching for Years K-12. The curriculum is distinct from but complements faith formation. All students in Catholic schools in Western Australia are required to learn Religious Education.

The Religious Education Curriculum is modelled on the School Curriculum and Standards Authority (SCSA) Western Australian curriculum. As with other curricula, the Religious Education curriculum specifies the knowledge, understanding, skills, values, and attitudes that students are expected to acquire and provides guidelines for the assessment of student achievement. Students are assessed based on their knowledge and understanding of the Religious Education Curriculum, not their personal faith.

The Religious Education Curriculum is complemented with the Making Jesus Real (MJR) program. Through weekly MJR lessons, students are encouraged to show Spirit of Jesus (SoJ) moments through their words and actions.
