Education in Faith

At. St. Joseph’s, we believe that every human person is made in the image of God.

At St. Joseph’s, we believe Catholicity permeates all that we do, and therefore our teaching and learning is structured to promote self-reflection and critical dialogue.

Learning experiences are designed to enable students to explore issues, questions and problems in ways that are meaningful, strongly engaged in Catholic beliefs, and related to the world.

The three dimensions are used to reflect a holistic approach to education, enabling the learner to explore all aspects of the Religious Education Framework:

  • Knowledge and Understanding (seeking truth)
  • Reasoning and Responding (making meaning)
  • Personal and Communal Engagement (understanding my story and our story)

These dimensions are accessed via engagement in the five content areas of:

  • Scripture and Jesus
  • Church and Community
  • God, Religion and Life
  • Prayer, Liturgy and Sacrament
  • Morality and Justice

In Religious Education, we explore the three dimensions and five content areas of the Religious Education Framework and we regularly reference the To Know, Worship and Love student text.
