Religious Education Curriculum


Religious Education at Samaritan College is part of the curriculum from Reception to Year 12. It is a rigorous academic subject and it also pervades all facets of the informal curriculum which impacts on every aspect of college life. The College Motto; Faith Wisdom and Compassion, is at the heart of our teachings. We strive in partnership with parents, to develop the whole child to know Jesus, achieve their best academically and become socially just individuals.
The curriculum frameworks used to support Religious Education in the college are mandated by the Bishops of the Arch Diocese of Adelaide and the Diocese of Port Pirie. These frameworks include; Crossways: Religious Education Framework for SA Catholic Schools, Made in the Image of God: Human Sexuality Program for SA Catholic Schools and Keeping Safe: Child Protection Curriculum.
Through our Religious Education Program we seek to build a faith community based on the Good Samaritan and Edmund Rice charisms. We seek to engage our students in a rich prayer life where they can participate in liturgical celebrations and Christian outreach opportunities.
The curriculum is designed to engage and challenge students to explore aspects of their own personal faith journeys and offer students opportunities to come to know and love Jesus.
