Religion

Religion is an important element of the School life. The teaching of R.E. from P.1. to P.7. classes is based on the Alive ‘O’ Programme. These are accepted elements of the N.I. Curriculum. What is distinctive about Catholic Education is that the faith in Jesus Christ is the centre point of all the child’s personal and intellectual development. There is no separation between faith and life. In the School, R.E. is therefore, much more than a subject and more than a space in the timetable.

Parents have the right to withdraw their children from R.E. lessons and daily acts of worship and should inform the Principal in writing if they wish to exercise this right. The School takes care to try to ensure that any child in this position is not made to feel excluded from the general life of the school.
