Catholic Life
“The Catholic school participates in the evangelising mission of the Church and is the privileged environment in which Christian education is carried out. In this way, 'Catholic schools are at once places of evangelisation, of complete formation, of inculturation, of apprenticeship in a lively dialogue between young people of different religions and social backgrounds.' ”Sacred Congregation for Catholic Education, (1997) “The Catholic School on the Threshold of the Third Millennium” n 11
In order to fulfil this mandate staff within the Catholic Schools Office:
  • offer a rigorous Religious Education curriculum, “Sharing our Story” (K- 12)
  • use Making Jesus Real as a tool for evangelisation in our primary schools
  • offer opportunities to school and CSO staff for spiritual formation and renewal through staff reflection days and programs such as Connections
  • provide ongoing professional learning for staff as evangelisers in school and parish
  • assist all teachers of Religious Education to be accredited for this mission
  • affirm parents in their role as the primary educators of their children
