Education in Faith

It is our vision that students and staff develop a personal relationship with God, while being engaged in a rich learning environment. This relationship will be built on experiences of justice, affirmation, support, respect and a love of learning.

At St Lawrence Primary School:

  • we believe that we are all created ‘in the image of God.’ (Gen 1: 27) and profoundly loved by God
  • it is our mission to invite students into the living tradition of the Catholic Church – fostering and developing Christian values, whilst embracing the diverse cultures and faith traditions of our families
  • we enact our unique Catholic Identity through the five Religious Dimensions of our school – praying, belonging, learning, celebrating and reaching out
  • prayer and worship are essential to the spiritual life of our school community
  • Catholic Social Teaching is a key focus through the teaching of the Principles of Catholic Social Justice.
  • Our concern for the care of creation is enacted through environmentally sustainable practices that promote responsibility and stewardship
  • The Religious Education Program aims to develop within each child an awareness of God in: Self, Others, Our Faith Community and the World
  • Our Religious Education program has high expectations of student engagement through dialogue, encounter and learning.
