Religious Education is a vital part of the curriculum at St Columba’s Catholic Primary School. Religious Education lessons are conducted daily in each class. Wherever possible, the ideals of our faith are integrated into other subject areas. The program enables children to participate in class and school Masses, Prayer Services, Reconciliation and Sacramental Programs.
Catholic children in Years 3, 4 and 6 will be prepared for the Sacraments of Reconciliation, First Eucharist and Confirmation. Catholic students entering our school in Years 4 to 6, who have not previously received the sacraments, will be offered the opportunity to join in with the celebration of these programs.
Parents are an important part of these preparations and are required to attend all meetings provided by the school and parish. The purpose of these meetings is to assist parents in further developing their personal faith and enable them to prepare their child for the Sacrament within the context of family.
