Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta released an updated version of its “Draft New Curriculum for Religious Education” yesterday.

Relieving executive director Christine Howe believes it is important to keep parents and carers updated about this approach that is all about sharing the Catholic faith with the next generation.

“As our community would expect, the Draft New Curriculum remains faithful to sacred scripture and tradition,” Ms Howe said. “It also makes sure that the way that the learning and teaching happens is kept up-to-date.”

“Though some have been quick to comment and indeed, condemn, this is the first time that the document has been officially released. I’m really pleased to be able to give parents and carers the opportunity to learn more.”

The updated document includes references to the relevant sections of the Catechism of the Catholic Church and a new “insights” section for teachers to use as a resource and guide.

When it is launched in late 2021 the Draft New Curriculum will replace Sharing Our Story, the current curriculum that has been in place in the Diocese of Parramatta for more than 20 years.
