Catholic Education South Australia

A strong Catholic identity is central to South Australian Catholic Schools.

Welcoming all families - including those of other faith traditions and families with no particular faith tradition - Catholic Schools hold core Catholic beliefs as central to their mission. Such beliefs permeate all that is done in a Catholic School, including teaching and learning across the entire curriculum.

All curriculum areas have a religious dimension: inviting students to examine the world of human culture and the world of religion, exploring a Catholic worldview, fostering the search for meaning and truth, and making links to the Good News of Jesus. This religious dimension is given depth by the faith witness of staff through their presence, relationships and teaching.

Catholic Schools view Religious Education as a core curriculum area. As well as being an opportunity to develop knowledge and skills, values and dispositions, Religious Education in a Catholic School invites students into a deepening encounter with the living God.
