Religious Education

The Spiritual Life of our School

In the life of faith of Our Lady’s Catholic School, Religious Education plays a central and vital part. At the heart of Catholic education lies the Christian vision of the human person. This vision is expressed and explored in Religious Education. Therefore Religious Education is never simply one subject among many, but the foundation of the entire educational process.

We are all God's children and there is no one else like us. We are unique. We are all different and we have the right to feel safe all of the time.
