Course Structure and Requirements

Religious Education in Sydney Catholic Schools brings faith into dialogue with life and has the capacity to be a source of wisdom, a stimulus to lifelong learning, a means to personal transformation and a call to missionary discipleship.

Religious Education is a scholastic discipline with the same systemic demands and the same rigour as other disciplines.
