Religious Education Curriculum

As part of the Lismore Diocese, St Joseph's Primary uses the curriculum documents created in the Archdiocese of Sydney. The Diocese of Armidale and the Diocese of Wollongong also use this curriculum. This is supported by the resource ‘To Know, Worship and Love,' which was produced by the Archdiocese of Melbourne and the Understanding Faith online resource, which is produced locally. In the Lismore Diocese, we use Scripture (Luke 24:13-35) in detail, connecting the curriculum, catechesis and pedagogy of the classroom to the elements of the Emmaus story.

At St Joseph's, our Religious Education curriculum provides a consistent and rigorous approach that matches the other Key Learning Areas. The teaching time allocated per week to Religious Education is 2.5 hours.
