Vision for Religious Education

At Our Lady of the Sacred Heart School, we aspire to know and experience the love of God and demonstrate the actions and values modelled by Jesus. We share in the joys and challenges of our diverse religious backgrounds and learn new things with excitement, wonder and awe. We strive to learn to love ourselves and others through our respectful words, actions and understandings. We seek to teach religious literacy in the Catholic and broader Christian tradition through enriching and engaging learning possibilities.

The school community of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart at Darra aligns its vision for Religious Education with the Brisbane Catholic Education's 'Vision for Religious Education', with particular emphasis on the following elements:

  • The complementarity of the two dimensions of Religious Education
  • Alignment with the goals of the Brisbane Catholic Education (BCE) Learning and Teaching Framework (2012)
  • Challenges students to be a religious voice in the world
  • Developing the religious literacy of students in light of the Catholic Christian tradition
  • Jesus Christ is the centre of this Vision
