Being a school firmly rooted in the Catholic faith, there are many opportunities for Catholic children to explore and deepen their faith. They may participate in weekly catechism classes as part of the extra-curricular activity programme coordinated by the Faith Formation Leader for the Elementary School, and we offer classes for preparation for the sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Communion which are celebrated in the School Chapel. In the High School, the Religious Education programme we offer is intended to deepen a student’s conviction in his or her own belief, as well as to create in our students a deeper understanding and appreciation of people’s differences, religious as well as cultural, in order to make the world a more peaceful place. We stimulate the inter-religious relationship by including the study of Lasallian tradition and heritage within the RE curriculum.
Physical Education is part of the Elementary and High School curriculum.
