The Religious Education curriculum is based on the outcomes set in the Religious Education Progress Maps published by the Catholic Education Office.
Prendiville Catholic College follows guidelines for Religious Education provided by Catholic Education Western Australia. Catholic curriculum and Religious Education are guided by the Bishops of Western Australia. The aim of Religious Education is that students know and understand the Gospel and can bring this to life in the College and into the wider world. It is part of the mission of the Church to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ. Religious Education complements experiences such as retreats, liturgies and prayer as well as activities in service learning. Ideally, it helps students understand such experiences as part of Christian life and encountering what is sacred in our faith.
Topics in Year 7 Religious Education are:
- Christians are followers of Jesus
- Living as Church
- The love and goodness of God
- Living in God’s love
