Our school provides opportunities for students, staff and parents to know and celebrate our Catholic faith. This is done through the religious life of our school. Members of our community experience a rich liturgical and prayer life, celebration of the Sacraments, faith formation, social outreach activities, and opportunities to share faith with each other and with youth from other schools in the Archdiocese.
At St Gertrude’s Primary School Smithfield, we acknowledge parents as the primary educators of their children in faith. Our Religious Education curriculum allows students to gain a deeper understanding of Catholic faith and traditions, recognising God in their lives and the lives of others.
We value prayer and liturgy as an important part of school life with grade and whole school masses, prayer assemblies and prayer celebrations throughout each term. We encourage and invite parents to be a part of these celebrations.
