Evangelisation & Faith Formation (EF)
Living the Gospel (EFG)
Identifying and using scriptural texts to promote and support the Christian values of the school (EFG3.1).
Students form groups of seven to review scripture passages that refer to Mary for clues about how her faith strengthened those around her.
Spiritual formation (EFF)
Utilising resources and developing activities that enrich and nurture an appreciation of the wide variety of spiritual charisms within the Christian tradition (EFF3.3).
Students use a set of rosary beads and a visual and written guide to reciting the Rosary appropriate for their age and understanding.
Prayer & Worship (PW)
Christian prayer (PWP)
Teaching and using a variety of traditional prayers and devotions for individual and communal use (PWP1.1).
Students pray the Rosary without focusing on scripture but simply as a series of traditional prayers such as the Hail Mary, Glory Be and Our Father as a mantra and using beads. Students identify the two different purposes of using the Rosary to assist in a meditation of scripture and as a repetitive mantra.
