Religious Education (RE) is one of the Key Learning Areas.  The RE curriculum is set by the Bishop of Wollongong in conjunction with the CEO.  The K-6 RE curriculum is based on the Emmaus Paradigm, derived from the Emmaus story (Luke 24:13-35), where Jesus meets two disciples and walks with them but they do not recognise him. 

The four inter-related aspects of the paradigm enable the students to:

  • Make sense of everyday life in the broader contexts of mystery, complexity, confusion and awe
  • Gain access to and understand the Scriptures, the traditions of the Catholic community, it’s stories, experiences and teachings
  • Respond to God in their lives
  • Celebrate with others the mystery and life of the Risen Christ
