At St Monica’s Primary School, our aim is to personalise learning to enable children to reach their full potential emotionally, socially, intellectually and spiritually.
Our vision challenges us to provide and support a quality Catholic education that prepares each child for the future through caring and innovative teaching.
Religious Education Curriculum
Religious Education is a vital part of the overall learning at St Monica’s. Based on the Parramatta Diocese Religious Education Curriculum, Religious Education is taught every day in all grades, and is enriched by daily prayer, guided meditation, social justice and outreach, and celebration of the Word of God.
As a whole school community we celebrate Mass once a term. Each module, K-2, 3-4, 5-6 also celebrate Mass once a term. Children from Years 3-6 have the opportunity to go to Reconciliation each term and regular visits to our Parish Church complement many units in our RE program.
Class prayer liturgies happen regularly, and prayer is an integral part of daily life at St Monica’s.
Sacramental programs are run by the Parish. School staff are involved in supporting the programs by active participation in preparation, celebrations and promotion of these sacraments. Our Religious Education curriculum allows further insight into the sacraments throughout primary school years.
St Monica’s school community enjoys supporting many charities and outreach programs. Red Nose Day, Daffodil Day, St Vincent de Paul and Hawkesbury Christian Church food drives, San Miguel and Bandana Day are just a few of the projects we have supported.
Each class works to raise the funds to support a child through World Vision, an outreach project that has been running in our school for over 10 years.
