Religious Education

At Loyola, all areas of the curriculum and school life are underpinned by Catholic values to support the development of the whole person through formation of the mind to think critically and reflectively formation of the heart from which is to spring character, virtue, spiritual depth development of practical skills in whatever field of endeavour one pursues.

Our Religious Education program enables students to develop in their understanding and appreciation of our faith, other religious faiths and Australian society. Throughout the school year, and with the assistance of our school Chaplain, we celebrate our faith through prayer and liturgies, weekly masses, retreats and reflection days.

We promote respect and responsibility by preparing our students for active participation in the local parish community. We support this with our strong parish links and by providing opportunities for students to become actively involved in social justice and community service. These opportunities include local parish events and youth groups, volunteering for the St Vincent de Paul Society, immersion experiences, charitable appeals, being involved in the Young Christian Students (YCS) group, assisting with reading and mentoring in the parish primary schools and acting as Special Religious Education teachers in local state schools.
