Religious Education Curriculum

Welcome to the Religious Education (RE) Curriculum website, an online resource and learning space for the Sydney Catholic Schools Draft Religious Education Curriculum.

Secondary Religious Education

At a time when society is becoming increasingly secular, and some people even question the existence of God, there is an even greater need for young people to benefit from a high quality Secondary Religious Education curriculum.

Students in Years 7-10 are invited into a deeper and more intimate relationship with God through their exploration of the Scriptures, their participation in personal and communal prayer and their living out of Catholic social and moral teaching. All students enrolled in Sydney Catholic Schools are required to study Religious Education.

The Draft secondary RE curriculum provides opportunities for young people to ‘see, judge and act’ in response to Jesus’ great commandment to love God and love others and thus, ‘live life to the full’.
