Religion and Family Life Curriculum Grade K - 8
Catholic educators recognize that parents are the primary educators of their children in the areas of faith and morality. Faith formation begins very early in a child’s life through the experiences and life lessons that are taught at home, as well as through the local parish faith community. As educators within Catholic schools, we have the privilege of supporting and complementing this formation.
Discerning Believers/un croyant formed in the Catholic faith community who celebrate the signs and sacred mystery of God’s presence through word, sacrament, prayer, forgiveness, reflection and moral living.

Reflective, Creative and Holistic Thinkers/un penseur réfléchi et creatif who solve problems and make responsible decisions with an informed moral conscience for the common good.
Self-Directed, Responsible, Lifelong Learners/un apprenant à vie who develop and demonstrate their God-given potential.
Collaborative Contributors/un collaborateur who find meaning, dignity and vocation in work, which respects the rights of all and contributes to the common good.

“When we graduate a student,
we don’t ask “what did you learn?”, but “who did you become”?
