Christian education

Faith in daily life

Agnes School considers that the spiritual growth of its pupils is an integral part of the tailored educational project that it offers. 

Above all, the school emphasises the key role played by parents in their children’s spiritual growth. Pupils are encouraged to deepen their relationship with God and to develop their spiritual life with a real sense of freedom and commitment. This allows them to enrich themselves as human beings and become excellent people, in every sense of the word. 

The school is open to all families who identify with its educational project. It is not necessary to be a Christian to be admitted to Agnes School, however it is essential that parents accept and respect the school’s religious choice. 

The school chaplaincy service is entrusted to two priests from the Catholic institution Opus Dei: one for pre-primary and primary school and another for secondary school.

Mass is regularly held at school, and parents and teachers are welcome to attend. There is also an opportunity for pupils to confess. Special mass sessions are organised for families. 

Religious education (RE)

All pupils attend RE lessons, which help them to gain a deep understanding of the Christian faith. These lessons cover topics such as the sacraments, moral theology and sacred scripture. 

They seek to promote unity between faith, culture and life in order to raise responsible adults who use their faith and talents to the benefit of the people and society that they will help to build. 

In pre-primary school, teachers use the “Bon Berger” (good shepherd) method to introduce children to faith. Inspired by Maria Montessori’s educational philosophy, this catechesis invites children to experience the love of God and accompanies them in their religious aptitude for contemplation and prayer. With the help of specially created materials, pupils learn how to approach God on their own, according to the principle “help me to do it on my own”. 

Access to and preparation for sacraments

The priests hold mass several times a week, and pupils, parents and teachers are all welcome to attend. Pupils also have the opportunity to receive the sacrament of reconciliation, should they want to. 

The chaplaincy can offer its services to help children prepare for confession (P1), first communion (P2) and confirmation (P5-P6).
