Over 116,000 Australians are experiencing homelessness right now. On one of the longest and coldest nights of the year, June 23rd, business owners and community and government leaders are encouraged to ‘sleep rough’ for a night to raise awareness and vital funds for homelessness in Australia.
At the start of the year, we sent out a survey to our subscribers about our resource. We’ve received all the results and have been going through the feedback, to draw out the most common responses, and to gain some insight where we can continue to improve our product. Here is some feedback developed from the results, from our manager, Jacob.
Understanding Faith is an educational ministry of St Agnes’ Parish, Port Macquarie, under the leadership of Parish Priest, Father Paul Gooley.
We are very proud of our unique multimedia resource, which links student content, Church teachings and Scripture, to interactive activities, video excerpts, radio broadcasts, music, newspaper articles, slideshows, and the internet – as well as pedagogically sound and contemporary teaching and learning activities.
A recent addition to the secondary curriculum is the Studies in Catholic Thought syllabus.
The Understanding Faith resource has titles for both primary and secondary education.
At the end of term 2, we usually receive our child’s first yearly report and meeting up with his/her teachers for a quick update on how it’s all going.
Is this a time in your child’s education that you look forward to? Or is a time you dread? Do you think you know what to expect? Has it snuck up on you without warning?
Because these units are so large, the team at Understanding Faith has added a quick reference contents page that links you straight to the content.
Look for these under: ‘Part 1: Overview’ of each Studies of Religion unit.
We know that all teachers are time poor and need quick, reliable, engaging resources to use in the classroom. We also know that most teachers have tried and tested many different resources available and that takes time!
