Religious Education Program
The Religious Education Program at Avila nurtures faith and provides knowledge about Sacred Texts, Beliefs, Church and Christian Life as well as different religious beliefs and practices.
The Program is developed around the pillars of the head, the heart and the hand. The head component requires students to develop an understanding of faith and what it means to them. The heart aspect refers to the ability to empathise and to be caring and compassionate, whilst the hand element refers to student participation in social justice programs by volunteering to help those less fortunate.
Students are challenged to reflect on and explore their Christianity, both philosophically and actively, through the classroom program, Christian Reflection Days and community-based projects.
In all of this, and more, the students at Avila College continue their journey of faith and will be encouraged to be Ecclesiae Filia just like St Teresa of Avila and Nano Nagle.
