RELIGIOUS EDUCATION

Religious Education is not just taught within the classroom.  At St Joseph's College, many varied programs and facilities are provided to sustain the Christian faith of our College community.

General Learning Area Classrooms provide traditional workspaces for our Religious Education students.  The Awakenings Curriculum, open plan spaces, use of technologies and dynamic teaching means the students are engaged and active in their learning. 

The original Mercy Chapel is located behind the Mercy Convent, now the Enright building.  Students use this beautiful old building for classroom activities, liturgies, displays and meditation.  

The Sacred Heart Parish Church located on Eleventh Street is a spiritual place of worship.  The College utilises this facility for our Ash Wednesday Liturgy, Passion Liturgy, St Joseph the Worker Mass and Mercy Mass. 

The College grounds provide a sanctuary for students during recess and lunchtime, but they also provide a connection to the environment for students during their Religious Education classes.  The grassed areas, lush plantings and special areas around the College all provide avenues for self reflection and special places to work.

As part of the VCE Religious Education Art Curriculum, students produce art works related to their faith, signs and symbols of the Church and ideas related to Christianity.  The Visual Arts department has many fine examples of students works undertaken over the years.  

Finally, Junior and Senior Mercy Works Programs facilitate learning within the community.  Through volunteer programs, talks and workshops, students contribute in the endeavour of our College to maintain the Core Values of Spirituality, Excellence, Compassion, Justice, Hospitality, Community and Service.
