Religious Education

At Our Lady of Good Counsel School, the Religious Education Programme aims to share the Catholic faith by promoting knowledge and understanding of the Gospel, as it is handed on by the Catholic Church, and of how those who follow Christ are called to live this Gospel.

 

Our Religious Education programme is based on the Perth Archdiocesan Religious Education Units set down by the Catholic Education Office. To further faith development, students participate in Christian life and are encouraged to be involved in Christian life and service where they can express their faith through the celebration of prayer, liturgy and the sacraments.

 

Our Lady of Good Counsel School provides the opportunity for students to participate in Parish Masses, and Class Masses. Whole School Masses are held on special days of commemoration.

 

Sacramental Preparation

The proper preparation of children who are to receive the sacraments is essential to staff, parents and Parish. Children are prepared for the Sacrament of Penance in Year 3, the Sacrament of Eucharist in Year 4 and for Sacrament of Confirmation in Year 6.
