Christian Personal Development Award commences for Year 11 Students
In their first Religious Education lesson for 2018, the Year 11 students revisited their work from the CPDA Introductory Program in Year 10.
The themes of the introductory program were on display in the form of artwork produced by the students on the Year 10 Retreat. It reminded everyone of the need to never tire of acting mercifully and living justly. The themes are from Mattthew’s gospel and are known as the corporal works of mercy.
“Come, you that are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.” Matthew 25: 35-36
Assistant Principal for Catholic school Culture, Mr Tony Haintz outlined the CPDA process for 2018-2019. Year 11 parents are asked to discuss the achievement of the award with their sons and daughters. The results of that discussion are to be pasted in the student’s Religious Education work book. This will be checked by their RE teacher in coming classes.
