Catholic Education South Australia

Religious Education

Learning in the academic area of Religious Education is based on Crossways, the Curriculum Framework for South Australian Catholic schools.

Crossways explores 12 Key Ideas- God and Revelation, Being Human, Textual Interpretation, Church and Community, Discipleship and the Reign of God, Moral Decision Making, Religious Authority for Ethics, Social Justice and Ethical Issues, Sacraments and Sacramentality, Prayer and Liturgy, The Liturgical Year of the Church and Religious Traditions.

These Key Ideas are covered through age appropriate Learning Outcomes. Teachers are encouraged to explore the Key Ideas creatively, to link learning about our school values to them and to use them as a basis for prayer and faith experiences in their classroom.
