Religious Education

Larmenier Catholic Primary School bears witness to the ideals of the Church as a community committed to the Catholic Faith – a community centred on the Eucharist in which Christian principles are encouraged and practiced.

Our School, which has taken as its motto ‘Christ is our Model’, creates an atmosphere where each student can come to know Christ as a real person. The School supplements the primary faith educators – parents – in their children’s knowledge and appreciation of faith. Positive interaction between the School and parents is considered essential.

Whole school prayer and daily class prayer times are important in the life of the School. Class and school Masses are held regularly throughout the year, and a Family Mass is organised once a term on a Saturday evening. A supper for families and parishioners is held following the Family Mass which provides an opportunity for those within the School community to connect. 

Good News for Living, the Archdiocesan Religious Education guideline, is the core document teachers at Larmenier Catholic Primary School use to develop their own understanding of their faith and pass this onto the students in their care. Unit outlines, aligned with the Australian Curriculum, are used and developed to suit students’ needs. The ‘To Know, Worship and Love’ resources are also used to support our Religious Education program.

Our Year 5 and 6 students participate in the ‘Make Jesus Real’ program to support their Religious Education. Year Four focus on ‘The Spirit of Jesus’ to highlight the messages that Jesus gave to us that can be applied to our everyday lives.
