Religious Education


At the heart of our Religious Education program is ‘an invitation for students to engage in a dialogue between the world they know and the faith to which they are called’ (Crossways: Religious Education Framework for South Australian Catholic Schools).

It is the purpose of the Religious Education curriculum to provide opportunities for a deeper understanding of the Catholic tradition so as to encourage meaningful connections with the life of the church.

The Religious Education program at Mount Carmel is accepting of the diversity of faith and cultural backgrounds that exists within our community and provides opportunities to learn about other religious traditions that operate in our world today.

All students at Mount Carmel College will study Religion in Years 8-11 for the full year.

More broadly our Religious Education programs are extended to other areas of school life which includes College liturgies, retreat programs and daily prayer. Participation in these communal aspects of the life of the College is required.
