Religious Instruction

Voluntary teachers take religious instruction for the students of year 3 to year 6 for one half hour each Thursday at 9:00am.  It begins in term 2 and finishes by the middle of term 4.  The teachers follow the CEC programme.  A copy of the programme is also availalbe at the school office.

All students attend the sessions unless the parent requests otherwise.  An alternative programme, supported by a Mellons Bay School teacher, is offered to the students not attending religious instruction.  It runs from 8:50 to 9:30am each week.  The focus supports the key competencies of the New Zealand curriculum.
