Religious Education is woven into the daily life of the school through formal religion lessons, the integration of Christian values into other subject areas and the encouragement to live full Christian lives.
Opportunities for experiencing prayer and celebrating liturgy are provided for the school family, that is, parents, staff and children. Each class develops its own prayer focus in the classroom and makes prayer an integral part of the school day.
Various events are celebrated during the year. These usually include the opening of school, Lent, Easter, Advent, Mission Week, NAIDOC Week and other days of significance. Parents, grandparents and friends are very welcome at these special occasions.
The Sacramental Programs for Reconciliation, Eucharist and Confirmation are very much parish based with parents, Parish Priest and School working closely together.
St John’s Primary School is part of the Catholic Diocese of Bathurst. We acknowledge the Wiradjuri, Gamilaraay and Wailwan peoples, the traditional custodians of the lands on which our parishes, schools and offices reside. We also pay our respects to elders past and present.
