The APRE role is to support our Principal, Mr Kurt Dutney and Parish Priest, Rev Fr Stephen Bliss, in the leadership of the spiritual dimension of our school. Religious Education is comprised of two important though distinct endeavours.
The first is to teach people about religion which is best addressed in the classroom utilising best current educational practice. At Immaculate Heart Catholic Primary School this occurs through the teaching of our Religious Education Program which is based on the Brisbane Archdiocesan guidelines and focuses on Beliefs, Christian Life, Church and Sacred Texts in the Catholic tradition.
The second element of Religious Education is teaching people to be religious through prayer, celebration of liturgy and sacrament and social justice action.
