At St. Joseph’s Religious Education underpins all learning. Curriculum at St Joseph’s is illuminated by Catholic faith with the formation of, and reverence for the learner at its centre.  Learning experiences are designed to help learners develop their knowledge, skills and understandings in all learning areas.  It is within this context that all learners are entitled to access a quality curriculum where they have a feeling of connectedness and belonging, of being known and valued, and listened to.

The Victorian Curriculum is the curriculum for Foundation (Prep) to Year 10 that provides a single, coherent and comprehensive set of prescribed content and common achievement standards.  Our school uses this to plan student learning programs, assess student progress and report to parents.

As part of the Religious Education program, students participate in whole-school Masses, class Masses and classroom paraliturgies.  Students participate in daily prayer in the classrooms.
