Australian Curriculum

Edekit's Religious Education programs relate specifically to the requirements of the Catholic Education Office .

Religious Education is not expected to be included in the Australian Curriculum as such.



At a time when society is becoming increasingly secular, and some people even question the existence of God, there is an even greater need for young people to benefit from a high quality Secondary Religious Education curriculum.

Students in Years 7-12 are invited into a deeper and more intimate relationship with God through their exploration of the Scriptures, their participation in personal and communal prayer and their living out of Catholic social and moral teaching. 

The secondary RE curriculum provides opportunities for young people to ‘see, judge and act’ in response to Jesus’ great commandment to love God and love others and thus, ‘live life to the full’. 

The Religious Education curriculum supports the catechetical and evangelising mission of the Church while supporting young people in their lifelong journey in faith.

The Religious Education curriculum has been developed to stimulate and challenge students, especially in their understanding of Scripture and Tradition, their critical thinking and moral reasoning. It is based upon sound pedagogical practices.
