The classroom teaching of religion is one element in a complex web of experiences that have the potential to nurture the faith life of young people. In the schools of the Archdiocese of Brisbane the classroom learning and teaching of religion aims to develop the religious literacy of students to enable them to participate critically and effectively in the life of their faith communities and the wider society. Here at St Mark's we are using the Religion Curriculum developed by Brisbane Catholic Education in 2013. It has been granted the Imprimatur by Archbishop Mark Coleridge for use in all schools in the Archdiocese of Brisbane. The Religion Curriculum P-12 describes core content that is to be taught and that students should learn, and is therefore the starting point for planning for teaching, learning and assessing of Religion in schools. The four strands of the Religion Curriculum P-12 (Sacred Texts, Beliefs, Church and Christian Life) are interrelated and their content is taught in an integrated way.
The school undertook a Validation Process of the Religious Education Program in 2022. Part of this process involved an update of the Scope and Sequence for Religious Education.
