Religious Education

Religious Education for all year levels at Christ Church Grammar School continues in the Anglican tradition

Our emphasis is on inclusivity. Our teaching rests in informed analysis and critical thinking. The great strength of Godly Play is that it fosters engagement and wonder. These foundational attitudes are nurtured and encouraged in Years 4-6. 

Chapel Services continue to deepen and broaden the content that is explored in the classroom. The children’s spiritual experience and learning have been further enhanced by the singing instruction offered by Michael Fulcher the Music Director of the parish. He is attending chapel on both Tuesday (Years 1-3) and Friday (Years 4-6). The children are enjoying this musical input. He has created a Cantor Group that will lead us on Fridays and will enable Michael to broaden the singing repertoire. This group will also offer valuable leadership at other important services. These are welcome and exciting innovations that the children have grasped enthusiasm.

We emphasis Godly Play in the curriculum. Resources in the room provide an environment of enrichment. There is an increasing range of picture books and art materials available to encourage creative response to the stories that we share. Mother Linda took up teaching Year 3 and extended the methodology to them. This was a natural progression for this group, as they had known Godly Play in Years 1 & 2.
