Religious Education

St. Joseph’s Primary School invites and support students to discover Jesus’ presence in their daily lives. Within a gospel-centred environment students are challenged and supported to understand themselves and the world in which they live through a world view founded in Scripture and in the traditions of the Catholic community – its stories, its worships, its experiences and its teachings.
