Religious Education

Caritas College, in partnership with parents and families, educates the whole person, taking into account the students’ intellectual, moral, spiritual, religious, physical and social development.

Through education, Caritas College helps young people develop a capacity for sound judgement and introduces them to the cultural heritage handed down to them by former generations. Caritas College promotes values drawn from the Catholic Tradition in order to prepare students for more active participation in the world. Hence, education is understood as both a work of love and a service to society. Through the teaching of Religious Education we strive for excellence and integrity in all facets of school life.

From Reception to Year 12 Religious Education has educational outcomes and is taught using the same creative methods, rigour and assessment tools, as in other curriculum areas. The curriculum frameworks used are Crossways: Religious Education Framework for SA Catholic Schools, Made In The Image Of God: Human Sexuality Program for SA Catholic Schools and Keeping Safe: Child Protection Curriculum.

At Caritas College, the Retreat and seminar day program is an integral part of the RE curriculum. This mode of course delivery enables students to experience and participate in a range of learning experiences where students are invited to pray, reflect, develop relationships and deepen their faith.
