Religious Education

Religious Education

Religious Education at St Brigid’s Catholic School, Middle Swan, comprises two distinct but complementary dimensions – teaching religion as curriculum area and developing the religious dimension of the school by nurturing the religious, spiritual and faith of our students.

Religious Education is central to the curriculum and life of the school. It is taught in a context with the same systematic demands and rigour as all other learning areas and is sequenced to help children relate to the Catholic faith within their daily lives. The units of work are set by Catholic Education Western Australia and mandated by the Bishops of Western Australia.

Religious Education lessons are complemented by prayer, liturgical singing and class and whole school liturgies.

Pastoral Care means enhancing the dignity of each person within our school community whilst maximising learning and growth. The pastoral care of St Brigid’s Catholic Primary children is of paramount importance and is a shared responsibility between the school and the home. 

Sacramental Program

Children participate in Parish-based and School-supported, Sacramental programs in Year Three (Penance/ Reconciliation), Year Four (Eucharist) and Year Six (Confirmation).  As the first faith educators of their children, our parents are an integral part of this preparation and are encouraged to be supportive and involved in the process.

Preparation for each sacrament, includes a parent and student commitment ceremony, parent information sessions and a retreat day for the students, along with their normal religious educations lessons directly related to each sacrament.
