CATHOLIC SPECIAL CHARACTER
OUR RELIGIOUS EDUCATION (RE) PROGRAMME
Religious Education supports faith formation and is the time when we learn more about God - faith seeking understanding. We prioritise teaching RE in our school and our students are encouraged to ponder and live out their faith with various projects and activities.
From 2023, we transition to a brand new RE curriculum - Tō Tātou Whakapono | Our Faith.
There are four themes in this new Curriculum:
Te Atua | God
This focuses on the nature of God and considers each person in the Trinity: God the Father, Jesus and Holy Spirit.
Te Rongopai | Good News
Focusing on the Sacred Scripture in the Bible, we will invite and equip our students with ways of reading and praying Sacred Scripture.
Ā Tātou Whakapapa | Our Story
Focuses on the Church's story so far, but also on our students' own story, the story of our school, people and land.
Kia Noho Hāhi | Being Church
Focuses on individual and collective actions, responses and participation in the world in terms of understanding and living what it means to be in God's Catholic Church family.
