St Brendan's Catholic Primary School uses the Diocesan Religious Education Curriculum, "Awakenings"."Awakenings" is a comprehensive and sequential curriculum framework that is informed by the Doctrine of the Catholic Tradition and is presented to teachers and students in a way that reflects current understandings about teaching and learning. "Awakenings" (p.55) states that:
Religious Education intends to awaken us intellectually: * by encouraging critical thinking and inquiry; * by firing our imagainative capacity; * by enlightening our experiences with reason; * by broadening our perspectives through Scripture and Tradition.
Religious Education intends to awaken us ethically: * by forming moral character; * by arousing our desire for wisdom; * by attuning us to the attitudes of Jesus; * by promoting responsibility and integrity in living.
Religious Education intends to awaken us spiritually: * by relating our life to the mystery of God; * by valuing our interior life and capacities; * by developing prayerful and liturgical habits; * by connecting compassion with justice.
