Religious Education


The aim of Religious Education is to form students who are literate in the Catholic and broader Christian tradition so that they might participate critically and effectively in faith contexts and the wider society. The Archdiocesan Religion Cu​rric​ulum P-12 is the source for all planning of religion in Brisbane Catholic Education schools. 

The Religion Curriculum specifies religious knowledge, deep understanding and skills under four strands and selected sub-strands for each year level.  Core content from the Religion Curriculum will be taught across each year level, and teachers may choose to follow particular detours to further explore associated topics of interest for students.   

The classroom teaching and learning of Religion reflects the philosophy, structure, academic rigor, assessment, and reporting modes used in other curriculum areas.  The content reflects a Catholic Christian worldview that integrates faith, life and culture, and a wide range of learning strategies are systematically introduced throughout the years of schooling.  Learning and teaching of Religion incorporates the use of digital learning tools differentiated pedagogy and inquiry learning tools. 

The college will follow three pedagogical premises for the teaching of Religion. Teachers will collaborate to: 

  1. implement an inquiry approach 
  2. use a questioning pedagogy to implement rich learning strategies 
  3. embed digital learning tools. ​
