The Religious Education curriculum provides students with a learning environment which promotes their spiritual and moral development within the context of a Catholic Christian tradition.
Participation in all aspects of our tradition is a crucial part of life at St Joseph’s School, Tranmere.
Students are given the opportunity to celebrate and learn about their faith through class Religion lessons, daily prayer, liturgies and Mass.
The Religious Education curriculum follows the Crossways foundation document as a framework endorsed by Catholic Education South Australia (CESA). Crossways supports the integration of faith, life and culture by providing a curriculum framework for the development of teaching and learning within the Key Learning Area of Religious Education.
Crossways grounds Religious Education within the broader evangelising mission of the Catholic school and draws from the Catholic Tradition to nurture a rich set of student outcomes.
There are four strands: praying, believing, celebrating and believing. The key elements of the Religious Education curriculum include proclaiming the Gospel, witness, liturgy, catechesis, charity, justice and prayer.
The Religious Education curriculum provides the opportunity for students to be formed in the Catholic Tradition.
