Our mission is to develop students as life-long learners through a balanced curriculum enriched by Gospel values, whilst empowering them to make a positive contribution to the community.
The classroom teaching and learning of Religion reflects the philosophy, content, structure, academic rigour and assessment and reporting models used in other learning areas.
At St Peter Chanel, we believe that every person is created in the image and likeness of God and, inspired by the Spirit, responds with passion and creativity to life. We believe that all students are entitled to rigorous, relevant and engaging Religious Education programs, drawn from the Brisbane Catholic Education Religion Curriculum P – 12, which address their individual and diverse learning needs.
The following overviews list the focus areas of our Religion Curriculum Units studied by each year level throughout the year.

At St Peter Chanel we seek to develop the religious literacy of our students in the light of the Catholic Christian tradition, so that they might participate critically and authentically in contemporary culture.
The content of our Religion Curriculum is organised into four interrelated strands:
Sacred Texts Beliefs Church Christian Life.
Each strand has its own distinctive body of knowledge. Planning for the classroom learning and teaching of Religion should balance and integrate all four strands.
