CSPV encourage parents to explore what it means to be a family attending a Catholic school. How are you involved in the Catholic formation of your child in your learning community?
There are various ways families can be involved in the life of a Catholic school by:
• Attending liturgical celebrations at school - many schools will present liturgies in the form of drama plays or special presentations at assembly that tell the story of Jesus to teach the children the messages of how to live as Jesus did in their daily lives - learning to treat others well and make a difference in the lives of others who are less fortunate.
• Understanding how religion is taught in a Catholic school - have conversations with your child's teacher about how the religious education curriculum is integrated across learning at your school.
• Read more information about the religious education curriculum to understand the positive messages that children are learning about how to become model citizens through social justice learning at school.
• Families are able to then compliment this learning in the home through teaching children about the world around them and how we need to care for others in our local and global communities.
• Explore the stories the children are learning at school and how they relate to their every day world. What can they learn from these stories and how can your family lead by example?
