Religious Education Curriculum
Students in years 5 & 6 have already dived into exploring the action of the Holy Spirit in the lives of believers; in particular those we name as saints. They are learning about the special relationship our saints have with Jesus and how we can use them as role models for how we live our own lives. Some students in Year 6 will also be using their learning about a particular saint as they choose a saint in preparation for their own Confirmation. Here are some great websites if you are curious to learn more about a particular saint:
