Development of the Faith in the Catholic school
The raison d’etre of the Catholic school is for the development of the faith and inviting members of the school community to live the life of authentic apostolate. Faith formation is at the heart of the Catholic school.
The school curriculum, leadership, staff / pupil relationships, parental involvement, parish interaction, worship, prayer and social outreach assist faith formation in the Catholic school. This encouragement of faith formation extends beyond the Catholic faith to those of other faiths and Catholic schools encourage and facilitate students in practicing and developing their understanding of their own religious beliefs from whatever faith background they come.
The Catholic school has a sacred responsibility to promote faith and morals and the curriculum of the Catholic school provides opportunities for the development of an informed Christian conscience.
Debate and discussion of contemporary and critical moral and ethical issues are addressed in a way that corresponds to the maturity level of the pupils.
