Faith Education

SAN SISTO CLASSROOM.jpg​Religion classrooms at San Sisto College are vibrant and engaging spaces where teachers encourage philosophical thought, develop understanding of rituals and prayers, nurture an appreciation for diversity, inspire a passion for mission, grow a love for the Gospel and aid students to apply Christian values and beliefs to today's world. 

​Religious Education at San Sisto College is organised around the Brisbane Archdiocesan Model for Religious Education (2013, p.11). This model illustrates the distinct and complementary roles of the classroom teaching of the learning area Religious Education and the Religious Life of the College.  San Sisto College offers the Brisbane Archdiocesan Religious Education Curriculum from Years 7-10 and the choice of Study of Religion or Religion and Ethics in Years 11 and 12. These are both Queensland Curriculum Assessment Authority subjects and may contribute to their ATAR.​

The vision for Religious Education at San Sisto College is based on the Brisbane Archdiocesan vision:

The schools and colleges of the Archdiocese of Brisbane aspire to educate and form students who are challenged to live the gospel of Jesus Christ and who are literate in the Catholic and broader Christian tradition so that they might participate critically and authentically in faith contexts and wider society.

As a Catholic Christian community, we educate all to live the gospel of Jesus Christ as successful, creative, and confident, active, and informed learners empowered to shape and enrich our world.
