Religious Education

religious-edReligious Education is central to the curriculum at Aranmore Catholic Primary School.

The curriculum content in Religious Education is mandated by the Bishops of Western Australia hence the children (PP-Yr6) have daily Religion lessons. These lessons are complemented by prayer, liturgical singing, class and whole school masses and liturgies of the word, to which the parents and friends are invited.

The Catholic children receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation (Year 3), First Holy Communion (Year 4) and Confirmation (Year 6). By the nature of their mission and mandate, Aranmore Catholic Primary School supports families and the parish in the preparation of children to receive the sacraments.

The focus for Pre-Kindy and Kindergarten children is the spiritual development of the child through activities that support positive feelings towards themselves and others and which relate directly to the wonderful things that God has created. This is done informally though song, dance, drama and story.
