R.E & Faith

At Holy Spirit Community School, through our commitment to ‘Family, Faith and Friendship’, we strive to provide our students with a Christ centred education.  Students are assisted to develop and nurture their relationship with God and to develop their knowledge and understanding of the teachings and traditions of the Catholic Church.  

Our Catholic values permeate all aspects of our school life and have a tangible effect on our school community in allowing our students to develop an awareness of self and respect of others.   

In their faith journey and through providing them with a spirit filled life our students participate in daily Christian meditation, school liturgies, prayer services, daily prayer and Class Masses.   We recognise that the family is the primary educator of the child in their faith development and work with families to support this.  Through our strong working relationship with Holy Spirit Parish our students are prepared in our Sacramental Program.  The Sacrament of Reconciliation is celebrated in Year 3, the Sacrament of Eucharist is celebrated in Year 4 and the Sacrament of Confirmation is celebrated in Year 6.   Our teaching of Religious Education, which is based on the inquiry approach, is designed to allow our students to appreciate the connection between their faith and their life.   Our programs provide links with the Gospels, the Mission of the Church and the Principles of Catholic Social Teaching.  This enables them to develop awareness of and participation in social justice activities within our local and global communities.
