Is Alive-O the only programme I can use to teach religious education?
Currently, the Alive-O programme is the only religious education programme approved by the Irish Episcopal Commission on Catechetics for use in Catholic schools.
As parents, you are the primary educators of your children. In the sacrament of Baptism, you promised to be your child’s “first teachers in the ways of the faith” and to be “the best of teachers”. The Catholic school and parish are there to help and support you in this important task.
Classroom visits are a great way for priests and parish pastoral workers to link in with what is going on in schools, and to enhance the Home-School-Parish Links that are already in place within the parish.
