Religious Education

HPCPS, like other Catholic schools, is distinctive in curriculum in that the first learning area is Religious Education (RE).  RE is the classroom learning and teaching programthat assist students in developing their knowledge and understanding of Jesus, the Bible, the sacraments and the Catholic Church.  In Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten, the teachers nurture religious awareness throughout their learning experiences.  In Pre-Primary to Year 6, teachers use the mandated units of work produced by Catholic Education WA to plan, teach and assess RE. In Pre-Primary and Year 1, they have a 15 minute RE lesson per day and in Years 2-6, the students have a 30 minute RE lesson per day.
