Chapel and Religious Education

IMG_4558

St Hilda’s is an Anglican School that embraces children and parents of other faiths. The Chapel life of the Junior School provides our students with an opportunity to join together in prayer and celebrate the Anglican faith.

Students in Prep to Year 6 attend Chapel once a week. The students contribute to the services by selecting readings, writing prayers, dramatising biblical stories and singing hymns and songs of worship.

Religious Education is taught from Prep to Year 6 for about 60 minutes per week and in Pre-Prep for 30 minutes per week. The aim of these lessons is to teach the students about the Christian faith and its place in their lives. Teachers promote an awareness of other faiths and their contribution.

We believe that Chapel and Religious Education lessons nurture in our students an awareness of all faiths and sensitivity to them, while focusing on the importance of respect and dignity of all people.
