The Australian Curriculum describes what young Australians should learn as they progress through schooling. It is the foundation for their future learning, growth and active participation in the Australian community. It sets out essential knowledge, understanding, skills and capabilities and provides a national standard for student achievement in core learning areas.

The Tasmanian Catholic Education Good News for Living Religious Education Curriculum was first published in 2005 and has been refreshed to align with the language and frameworks of the Australian Curriculum. For Religious Education, the core focus is the teachings and example of Jesus Christ. Our Catholic beliefs are framed in Good News for Living via eight integrated theological Elements: God, Jesus, Church, Scripture, Sacraments, Prayer, Christian Life and Religion & Society.

Catholic Education in Tasmania is committed to a Catholic Curriculum, that is, a curriculum that is influenced by our Faith and Mission across all the Key Learning Areas. An additional Priority (Catholicity) and an additional General Capability (Wisdom) can further inform teachers as they plan learning programs for our students. Given our Catholic Ethos there is particular attention given to the diverse needs of students for inclusion, equity and pastoral care.

I have come that you may have life and have it to the full.

John 10:10
