Religious Education

Finding and experiencing God in our everyday is the reason for our existence at St. Martin of Tours Parish school. As a Catholic school; our vision and mission statement reflect Catholic traditions, beliefs and spirituality inside the framework of our contemporary world.

learning and teaching 2Recontextualising these important foundations of faith within our knowledge and understanding of a wider world, is an important ingredient of our childrens’ learning and development.

Our program reflects the learning foci as outlined in the Archdiocese of Melbourne text; To Know Worship and Love but is integrated with childrens’ inquiry learning. This strategy enables children to see that God; their relationship with him, with others and the wider world, is relevant and provides important guiding principles for their lives now and into the future.

Prayer

Children enter into a prayer life with their class through daily prayer, reflection and Christian meditation. They join with their school and parish family through class masses, school masses, family masses with parish and prayer services to celebrate the Church seasons and classroom units of work.

Sacraments

The school prepares children for Sacramental milestones by supporting the family. Parish and school actively engage with the childrens’ preparation and celebration of Eucharist and Confirmation in a spirit of collaboration and sharing of resources.

The Sacraments are celebrated in these year levels

  • Reconciliation Year 3
  • Eucharist Year 4
  • Confirmation Year 6

We hope to create for each child a sense of belonging to our school, our Faith Community and above all to our God.
