The Vision for Religious Education at St Eugene College reflects the Brisbane Archdiocesan vision:
We aspire to educate students who are challenged to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ and who are literate in the Catholic and broader Christian tradition so that they might participate critically and authentically in faith contexts and wider society (Catholic Education, 2013, p. 10).
This vision for Religious Education is expressed in the College Vision and Mission statement.
The key to St Eugene College’s vision for Religious Education is the Oblate charism which stems from, and reflects, Christ’s mission and teaching. We strive to live the Gospel values and to be Christ-like in our relationships with others - to be the face of Christ in Burpengary!
This vision is articulated through the complementarity of the two dimensions of Religious Education: the Religious Life of the School and the Religion Curriculum.
The vision is enacted through the careful planning of a curriculum from Prep to Year 12, based on the strands of Beliefs, Sacred Text, Christian Life and Church. These four strands of the Religious Education curriculum are interrelated and are taught in an integrated way.
Careful attention is given to the overall goal of religious literacy and developing students who can articulate their faith and live it in an open and authentic way (Catholic Education, Archdiocese of Brisbane, 2013, p. 11).
