Our school provides opportunities for students, staff and parents to know and celebrate their Catholic faith. This is done through the religious life of our school. Members of our community experience a rich liturgical and prayer life, celebration of the Sacraments, faith formation, social outreach activities, and opportunities to share faith with each other and with youth from other schools in the Archdiocese.

2023-Waterloo-OLMCPS,-SCHOOL-LIFE,-Catholic-Identity---Religious-LifeThe Religious Education program at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Primary School Waterloo is based on the curriculum developed by Sydney Catholic Schools. Religious Education is not taught in isolation; it is part of everyday life and is incorporated in all key learning areas. Children are encouraged to reflect on the message of Jesus and to embrace this in their daily lives. Our children are encouraged to develop their faith practice as they learn to:

  • reflect on Sacred Scripture
  • talk with God through prayer
  • participate in liturgy
  • explore the meaning of the symbols and rituals of our faith
  • respond to gifts and blessings in their lives
  • participate in outreach programs.
