Education in Faith / Catholic Identity
The children participate in formal Religious Education Classes each week within the classroom. The teachers plan these lessons using a range of sources including the ‘To Know Worship and Love’ text.
Class and school prayer is also an important feature of our school. School assemblies begin with a focus on prayer. The children also participate in class meditation and class and school liturgies. The children will, from time to time, celebrate Mass as a class and as a school group.
On occasions we will come together with the students of St John's, to celebrate important occasions. Parents are invited to attend these occasions. St James School recognizes that parents are the prime educators of their children in faith. The school alone cannot be expected to take on the development of your child’s personal Faith and Religious practices. We can do the most for your child when our Religious Program supports a religious life, which is generated and nurtured in the home and within our Parish.
