Education in faith is firmly grounded in an understanding of our ability to live the Gospel in a contemporary setting – it has a focus on deep learning, robust dialogue, discernment and truth-seeking. Across the start of this term students have engaged with the following studies:
Year 7: Sacred Story
Year 8: Being Catholic in a Contemporary World
Year 9: Prophets of Our Time
Year 10: VCE Religion and Society Unit 1: Religion through the Ages
Year 11: VCE Religion and Society Unit 2: Religion and Ethics
Year 12: VCE Religion and Society Unit 3: Expressing Meaning
Year 12: Religion and Life: Care for Creation
As a community of belief we work towards enabling critical, connected students anchored in their faith and committed to making a true contribution to the lives with which they intersect.
This coming week marks the sixth anniversary of "Laudato Si', on Care of Our Common Home," Pope Francis' landmark encyclical on the environment - the theme this year is for we know that things can change.
Laudato Si’ (Praise be to you) takes its name from the Canticle of the Sun, attributed to St Francis of Assisi. You may not be aware that there's a special relationship between Dominicans and St Francis - many artists have depicted Dominic and Francis meeting.
At Siena we continue to commit ourselves to Care for Creation by implementing and maintaining sustainable student-led initiatives - view the Pope’s invitation to celebrate Laudato Si' Week 2021.
