Religious Education is a learning area that supports and enriches our lives now and for the rest of our lives – if we accept.
The Religious Education programme aims to provide students with the opportunity to develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and to grow in the appreciation of Christ’s message, in partnership with their family and the parish. They begin to explore increasingly complex religious and social issues and gain the necessary skills to help them find the meaning of what it means to be a Christian.
The Religious Education teaching and learning program for Years 7 to 10 students is based on the Perth Archdiocesan guidelines published by the Catholic Education Office. The students complete a number of units throughout the year, which provides a strong foundation for those, who have and who have not attended Catholic Primary Schools. The Religious Education Learning Area at St Brigid’s College offers Years 11 and 12 students a choice of either the Religion and Life General course or the Religion and Life ATAR course. Students study the School Curriculum and Standards Authority (SCSA) approved course of study using the Catholic faith as the foundation of their studies.
Across all year groups, Students at St Brigid’s College are given opportunities to develop their faith and spirituality through participation in reflections, retreats, prayer and liturgies, which compliments the curriculum in the Religious Education Learning Area.
