At St Edward’s the community aims to foster the educational and the faith dimensions of our children within a Catholic Christian Community. Keeping in mind the vision and ethos of Catholic education religious education is an integral part of the curriculum and life of the school.
Religious education aims to develop students’ religious literacy in the light of the Catholic tradition. This aim promotes the development of knowledge, skills and values which students need to participate as active life-long learners. Religious Education is taught daily in formal lessons or integrated in units of work which aims to develop the children's religious literacy in the light of the Catholic tradition.
All children attending St Edward the Confessor School are involved in: Early Years, Years 3 to 7 and whole school prayer assemblies, year level/class liturgical celebrations involving the school, families and parish.

Prayer Assemblies are held each Monday morning [Years 3 to 7] and afternoon [Prep to Year 2]. Each class in turn takes the responsibility for organising a prayer presentation for these assemblies. Parents/carers are invited to attend.
