Religious Education

School Vision


















St. Michael’s Primary School is one of three schools that belong to St. Michael’s Parish Community.

We believe that faith development is an ongoing journey and that Religious Education must be seen within a developmental framework. The family is central to all learning with parents being the primary educators of their children. Therefore strong family/school and parish links are encouraged.

Religious Education is a daily part of the timetable in each grade.  The curriculum content is based on the Sale Diocesan Guidelines for Religious Education, Journeying together in Faith.  The course context covers areas such 

as the Scriptures, Liturgy and Sacraments.  Tradition, the World Around Us, the Church, the lives of people around us and formal prayers.


On particular occasions, the whole school community attends Mass at St Michael's church.  Parents are most welcome to attend all school liturgies. Parents are encouraged to attend liturgical celebrations held at various times throughout the school year. Masses are celebrated at school encouraging children to take an active role in liturgical celebration.

Sacramental Program

The St Michael's Sacramental Program, in line with Diocesan policy, is Family centred, Parish based and School supported. 

Whilst the Sacramental Program is part of the Prep to Grade Six curriculum, specific emphasis is given in Grade Three to Reconciliation, Grade Four to First Eucharist and Grade Six to Confirmation.  Class programs also work in closely with the seasons of the Church and special Feast days.
