Religious Education

As a Catholic school, we collaborate with parents and parishes to ensure and support the spiritual growth of our students. Our curriculum includes regular instruction in Religious Education, featuring a program that is both relevant and meaningful, rooted in core Catholic beliefs and values.

The classroom programs provide opportunities for students to develop their knowledge and understanding of each of these four strands. Our students are taught to apply their understanding to real-world issues and reflect upon the positive impact they can have in the world today.

The Religious Education program also provides the students with opportunities for participation in prayer, in liturgies and in spirituality days. We empower students to understand, internalize, and incorporate Josephite values such as compassion, forgiveness, hope, justice, and service into their daily existence.

Masses and liturgies

Our school’s role is to support the parents in their role as the first and primary educators of their children. St Pius X is an integral part of the parish community of Jesus the Good Shepard. At various times throughout the year, we encourage the families — Catholic and those who are not Catholic — to celebrate Mass with our broader parish community. On special occasions, such as feast days and Mothers’ Day, the students have opportunities to participate in school-based liturgies.

Sacramental programs

The Sacraments of Baptism, Penance, Confirmation and Eucharist are parish-based programs complemented by the classroom units of work in Religious Education.
