Education in Faith Overview


Rationale

At Annunciation school we recognise that the teaching of Religious Education is one of the foundations of our existence as a Catholic school. We acknowledge that we are employed by the church to assist parents in the teaching of their children about our shared Catholic faith. We understand that this teaching is based on the living traditions and practices of the Catholic Church, having as its source the Gospel message and the values of Jesus Christ. As Catholic educators we share these values and beliefs; we accept the responsibility of being faithful to the teachings of the Catholic Church, and we recognise the importance of our role in actively passing on this faith. We see this catechetical role as a means through which the faith of the children is nurtured, leading them to a developing awareness of God in their lives and helping them integrate faith and life.
