Curriculum

As a parent of a primary school student, you will want to know what your child is learning so you can help them at home. You and your child’s teachers will be the most important influences on your son’s or daughter’s education.

Religious Education

Prayer is a very important part of the life of the school.  The students pray daily and on special occasions.  We celebrate Whole School Masses during the term and celebrate special Feast Days.  Class Liturgies are a very successful part of our Religious Education Program.

We invite all families of the school to join with the Parish Community for weekend Masses.

The Sacramental Programs are as follows:

Year 2 – The Sacrament of Reconciliation
Year 3 – The Sacrament of the Eucharist
Year 6 – The Sacrament of Confirmation

The Sacramental Programs are run in close consultation with the Parish and begin with a Parent Information Evening.
