Primary RE - Growing in Love!


 

Lots of exciting news for Religious Education in Primary Schools this Autumn:

A new curriculum and a new programme!

 

It is a particularly significant moment in Ireland that we now have the FIRST EVER formal religious education curriculum for Catholic preschools and primary schools in the whole island of Ireland. It has been devised on the basis of the partnership between home, school and parish. This curriculum provides a SOLID FOUNDATION for the development of religious education programmes and other resource material to enhance the teaching of Catholic religious education at pre-school and primary level in the years ahead.

 

The Grow in Love programme, based on the new religious education curriculum, will be introduced to Junior & Senior Infants in September 2015. It will be welcomed by parents, priests, teachers, and by parish communities.
