Religious Education Curriculum

Learning in the area of Religious Education, both in the context of Faith Life Inquiry (F.L.I) and Stand Alone Religious Education, is based on Horizons of Hope, the new education framework for the Archdiocese of Melbourne. Religious Education curriculum content in both F.L.I and Stand Alone Religious Education is developed from the Renewed Framework for Religious Education, which builds student capacity in the following areas:

  • Scripture and Jesus

  • Church and Community

  • Prayer, Liturgy and Sacrament

  • God, Religion and Life

  • Morality and Justice


The Faith Life Inquiry (F.L.I.) approach to the learning allows students to contextualise the richness of the Catholic Tradition

within all curriculum areas. This approach allows students to take pause and recognise the glory of God in all of creation and within their own life experiences.


Students also deepen their understanding of the Catholic Faith within Stand Alone Religious Education units of work. These units seek to explore in greater depth the teachings of the Catholic Church, including the rituals and rites of the Church.
