Religious Instruction

 

As in all Education Queensland schools our Religious Instruction program is optional. At Currimundi Primary School those students opting to undertake the Religious Instruction program participate in a cooperative Christian religious instruction program.

Participating churches and their accredited teachers work within an agreement. At Currimundi Primary School Religious Instruction teachers use the Connect (PDF, 2013KB) program. Lessons are 30 minutes each week. Students attend these classes in accordance with parental instructions upon enrolment. Parents of Year 1 students will be asked to complete a Parent Notice for Religious Instruction in School Hours form. This information remains operational unless the parent informs the school otherwise in writing, by completing the appropriate form which is available at the school office.

Students who are not participating in Religious Instruction will undertake school work for the time of the lesson.

Religious instruction (RI) is offered at the school and is conducted on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday with each class receiving one 30 min block a week.

Students are allocated to RI based on information provided by parents on the completed Application for Student Enrolment unless other written instructions have been provided to the school.

Students who are not participating in RI will be provided with other instruction in a separate supervised location. Other instruction must relate to part of a subject area already covered in class and may include, but is not restricted to:

  • personal research and/or assignments
  • revision of class work such as creative writing or literacy and/or numeracy activities which could include online programs currently accessed by the students of that school (i.e. Mathletics, Reading Eggs) wider reading such as independent reading appropriate to the student.

 

Parents will be advised of any changes to the RI and other instruction programs to ensure they are able to make an informed decision on their child’s participation.
