Our High School and Primary school Catechetics are run separately on
different days. Primary School classes cater for children from Grade
0 to Grade 6 and are held on Mondays from 15:30 to 16:30 hrs. High School
classes are on Tuesdays from 18:00 to 19:00 hrs and cater for children from
Grade 7 to Grade 12.
Classes vary in size from 10 to 30 pupils. We teach Lectionary based Catechetics,
which means that all lessons are designed to give our children a better understanding
of the Gospel and in so doing enabling student to spread the Good News.
The year 2003 saw us joining our neighbouring parish in a First Holy Communion
Camp at John Bosco Retreat Centre in Walkerville, South of Johannesburg.
The weekend camp proved to be tremendously successful and a great learning
experience for both the children who attended and the parents who assisted.
We all came away closer to Jesus and with a better understanding of the importance
of the sacrament. We hope to make this camp an annual event so that many
more children will benefit from this enriching experience.
Like all parishes we too experience problems of lack of parental support
and a shortage of teachers, but with out leader Fr. Terry Barnard and our
small team of dedicated teachers we can keep moving forward powered by the
guidance of the Holy Spirit.
