Religious Education at MacKillop
Studies in Religious Education enable students to develop an understanding of their own faith and the belief systems of others. It forms an integral part of the holistic education offered by St Mary MacKillop College. “In order to promote Gospel values the St Mary MacKillop College community will take every opportunity to model and share knowledge of these Gospel values” (St Mary MacKillop College Mission Statement/Pastoral Care).
Our curriculum in Years 7-10 invites students to explore the foundation, culture, tradition and history of the Church. By the time our students enter their senior studies, our units of work challenge them to more deeply understand the nature of being fully human, of critical thought followed by action in working towards social justice, of being more able to articulate ethical positions in personal and global issues, and to be stewards of all God’s creation.
