Religious Education

Trinity Primary School strives to grow and deepen the lived expression of our Catholic faith and identity.

We actively develop, promote and support the role of the school in our parish. We seek to further deepen our understanding and
practise of Ignatian Spirituality, and the values and beliefs of other faiths.

Trinity Primary School aims to provide a Religious Education Program as an integral part of the curriculum. We use the recommended Catholic Education Melbourne guide, “The Pedagogy of Encounter” to integrate Religious Education throughout all areas of the curriculum. To complement this guide, the school uses a number of resources including scripture. We also provide opportunities for our students to participate in prayer and liturgical celebrations.

At Trinity Primary School we aim to explore Catholic ideals and instill in our students the attitudes and values of Jesus Christ as revealed to us through the teachings and traditions of the Catholic Church. We use dialogue to make connections between the Christian faith and other religions.


Sacramental Program

Our Religious Education curriculum incorporates the Prep to Year 6 Sacramental Program. Reconciliation, Eucharist and Confirmation are explored at each year level, providing on-going and deepening awareness of the Sacraments. The focus years for the celebration of the Sacraments occurs as follows: Sacrament of Reconciliation (Grade 3), Sacrament of Eucharist (Grade 4) and Sacrament of Confirmation (Grade 5 and 6).
