Religious Education

​St Joseph’s School encourages and supports both the religious education and faith journey of all its students and of all members of the community, in all areas of school life.

We provide a comprehensive Religious Education Program drawn from the Archdiocese of Brisbane Religious Education Curriculum that focuses on: 
  • our need to learn about religion - in particular our Roman Catholic tradition, and about other religious traditions in society (Religion Curriculum).
  • our need to grow in and to express ourselves in our own faith tradition, while respecting other traditions (Religious Life of the School).

​Religion Curriculum
The four strands of the Religion Curriculum (Sacred Texts, Beliefs, Church and Christian Life) are interrelated and their content is taught in an integrated way with the aim of developing our learners’ religious literacy so that all may participate critically and effectively as life-long learners within our faith communities and in society.

​The attached overviews provide the focus of Religion Curriculum units for each year level for the year. Teachers will inform parents and carers which particular unit(s) will be focused on each term through the Term Overview which is distributed at the commencement of each school term.
