While recognising that parents are the first educators of their children in faith, the Primary Religious Education curriculum enables young people to see and respond to God in their lives.
In particular, the ‘storytelling approach’ of Godly Play and The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd nurtures the natural capacity that young children have for curiosity, imagination and wonder.
Throughout their primary years, children are invited to reflect on Sacred Scripture, talk with God through prayer, discover the beauty of God’s creation and explore the meaning of symbols and rituals. Above all other things, this is the time when young people come to know how much God loves them, and when they are drawn into a love of God and others.
