Religions attempt to answer questions about life – its meaning and purpose.
Christianity claims that the answers are to be found in the person and teachings of Jesus Christ.
Catholicism offers a unique approach to the development of a relationship with Jesus Christ through its rich heritage of
theology, sacramentality, spirituality and morality.
Learning about religion promotes the holistic development of the students with an emphasis on the spiritual, moral, intellectual, social, emotional and aesthetic dimensions of life. It can help students, whatever their individual religious beliefs and backgrounds, to develop their knowledge, understanding, values and skills thereby assisting them to participate effectively in Australian society.
