Education in Faith
Our faith is at the centre of everything that we do at Galilee. We are committed to our faith community, fostering an environment where we educate the whole person and encourage everyone to reach their full potential.
At Galilee, Religious Education promotes the message of Jesus and develops children's understandings of living as a person of faith within their family, school, parish and the wider community. Religious Education permeates all aspects of the curriculum and school activities at Galilee.
We regularly celebrate together at Mass and in school based liturgies. We embrace the opportunities to gather together with the parishes of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, Middle Park, Ss Peter and Paul, South Melbourne and St. Joseph's Port Melbourne. These opportunities for worship build a strong sense of connectedness between school and the wider parishes.
We teach Religious Education using an integrated inquiry approach in line with the new Horizon's of Hope Religious Education Curriculum Framework (developed by Catholic Education Melbourne). We incorporate a rage of resources and materials to support our teaching in this area, including the To Know, Worship and Love texts (produced by the Archdiocese of Melbourne).
Religious Education at Galilee aims to help students grow in relationship with God. We aim to build on the experiences of each student, enhance their opportunity for rich dialogue with others and allow them to form them own understandings and make deep connections with their faith.
