Biblical Studies

Biblical Studies

All PCS Junior School curricula has Christ at their centre. The six Key Learning Areas mandated by the NSW Board of Studies are taught. Additionally students experience specific lessons related to helping them understand the God of the Bible. These include ‘Devotional’ times to begin the day as well as a Biblical Studies curriculum, in which they systematically examine stories of the Bible and how these ideas apply to themselves. Children also attend a weekly chapel / assembly in which they experience corporate praise, and each class enjoys an opportunity to present a ‘performance’ that highlights something they had learned in the Biblical Studies, plus weekly awards are given to the recipients.

 

The Junior School uses a Biblical studies program called ‘God Space’, which explores important concepts and principles through examining stories and characters in the Bible. The children have a workbook as well as a wide variety of multimedia ways to engage at an age appropriate level, and the program takes them through the Bible in a three year cycle.
