Explicit Teaching about Prayer

Religion Curriculum P-12

Explicit Teaching about Prayer is a resource that supports the Religion Curriculum P-12. It depicts the year level at which particular prayers and meditative prayer practices are explicitly taught, as identified in the content descriptions of the Prayer and Spirituality sub strand, and their development across the year levels. Further information and teaching ideas can be found on the Religious Education Curriculum website.

Teaching about prayer in a Catholic or ecumenical school is complemented by opportunities for staff and students to engage in prayer on a daily basis. In the course of their years at school, students will experience a variety of formal and informal expressions of prayer, appropriate to their age and development. Examples can be found in the Prayer and Worship component of the Religious Life of the School P-12.​

 View the Prayer Library in the Ways to Pray Calendar for examples.
