Teachers will keep parents/guardians informed on an ongoing basis as to the content of their child’s Religious Education program. The Religious Education curriculum at St Anthony’s School is mandated by the Bishops of Western Australia. It has priority in all planning and development of classroom timetables. Also mandated by the bishops is a minimum teaching time of fifteen minutes per day in Pre-Primary and Year 1 and thirty minutes per day for other primary classes. Liturgies, prayer and retreat experiences do not form part of the Religious Education curriculum and time given to these is not taken from the mandated teaching time.
