Religious Education

At St. Ita’s we focus on the development of the whole child – spiritually, morally, socially, emotionally and intellectually. We seek to develop students who feel accepted and have an appreciation of the world and their place within it.

 

We embrace the teachings of Jesus and endeavour to practise the gospel values of honesty, forgiveness, justice, compassion and equality. Our Social Justice focus and Social Skills Program make strong connections with these teachings and embeds these values even further.

We celebrate together in the form of whole school masses and liturgies and embrace the opportunities to gather together with the parish. Through these opportunities we are able to strengthen our faith community. We utilise the Primary Religious Education Curriculum Framework which incorporates the To Know, Worship and Love text and other programs and materials to support our teaching.

All baptised Catholic students receive the sacraments in the following order:

  • Reconciliation – Year 3

  • First Eucharist – Year 4

  • Confirmation – Year 6

Sacramental programs are school based and linked with the life of the Parish. Formation and Information Nights are held for parents.
