From the APRIM

Gleeson College provides students with opportunities to experience learning and living with the integration of faith in all aspects of school life. The Religious Education area facilitates this by supporting a number of initiatives integral to the life of all members of the Gleeson College community.

The Religious Education curriculum program contributes to the further development of the personal faith journey of each individual student. All year levels are expected to complete the academic requirements as prescribed in the curriculum. This program examines the Catholic tradition in addition to empathetic investigations into other religious traditions, throughout the five year program.

The focus of faith development and living through the example of Jesus, are supported by our college theme 'With One Heart'. It also encompasses the vision of Archbishop James Gleeson, who encouraged the call for all community members to be of service to others. In this light, Gleeson College acknowledges students from a diversity of religious backgrounds, and provides a community environment in the spirit of 'With One Heart'.

Religious formation within the Gleeson College community is supported through the values of the 'Gleeson 10' and participation in numerous retreats and liturgies which are conducted at all year levels and encourage reflection and the development of personal faith journeys. The Faith in Action and Christian leadership options enable students to further develop an understanding of their influence, as individuals, in the lives of others.

Links with local Parish communities are fostered collaboratively through the Sacramental program which is available to individuals seeking deeper connections within the Catholic faith.

Gleeson College proudly maintains many special traditions throughout the year through religious celebrations of the Eucharist.
