Religious Education

St. Xavier’s Primary School is part of St Joseph’s Parish Gunnedah, the Catholic Diocese of Armidale and the world wide Catholic Church.

  • Religious Education should be based on the life of Jesus and witness to gospel values in both our teaching and everyday life.
  • Teaching and interaction with children should promote Christ-like behaviour and bear witness to inclusiveness, forgiveness and love.
  • Religious Education encompasses all aspects of the child’s development with a scripture and knowledge-base program and Catholic values integrated across all Key Learning Areas.
  • The whole school community is provided with opportunities for spirituality and self-expression through liturgy, celebrations, sacraments, prayers and Masses building a strong link between the school, parish and wider community.
