Religious Education

What is distinctive about Catholic Education is that faith in Jesus Christ is the centre point of all the child's personal and intellectual development.  There is no separation between Faith and Life. Catholic Education for us is primarily formation in Faith.  The Faith which is handed on by being lived in the family, the community and the school is also reflected upon and deepened through following the religious education programme.  In the Catholic School Religious Education is, therefore, much more than a subject but rather pervades the whole life of our school holding a central position in the curriculum and is accomplished in two equally important and complementary ways:

(i) Through the totality of experiences in the school;


(ii) Through the Religious Education Programme, The Grow-In-Love Series, which incorporates fully the Proposed Core Syllabus for Religious Education in Grant Aided Schools in Northern Ireland.
