Sacrament Strand meeting

To begin the meeting Co-DRS Ann Dooley will share meditation with us as experienced on our Monica Brown DRS retreat.

Teachers check targeted children from 2014/ 2015 Sacrament Strand Ko e afo ‘o e Sakalameta
Teachers enter assessment data here
Assessment task year 3-8
Reflect on the teaching of the previous strand:
What went well in the teaching and learning of the strand?
What issues arose – what concepts were difficult?
What did the summative assessments show?
How did children respond to questions relating to the affective domain?
Were the attitudes displayed and built on throughout the strand?

Were the learning intentions conveyed and displayed at each lesson?

Main concepts decided as a staff- What we would like our children to gain through the Sacrament Strand teaching.
1. Grace is God's love and strength working with us and the world. Ko e Kalāsia ko e ‘ofa ia ‘a e ‘Otua mo ‘ene ivi ngaue ‘ia kitautolu pea mo mamani.
2. Sacraments bring grace. Ko e ngaahi Sakalameta ‘oku ne foaki ai ‘ene kalāsia
3. Know the seven sacraments.Ke ‘ilo’i e ngaahi Sakalameta ‘e fitu.
4. Know the signs and symbols of the sacraments Ke ‘ilo’i e ngaahi faka’ilonga mo e fakatatā ‘o e ngaahi Sakalameta.
Tagalog Translation (Filipino): Ang Hibla ng Sakramento
1.   Ang grasya ay pagmamahal at lakas ng Diyos sa atin.
2.   Ang mga sakramento ay nagdadala ng grasya.
3.   Alamin ang  pitong  sakramento.

4.   Alamin ang senyas at simbolo ng mga sakramento.
 These four concepts will be the context of the Sacrament strand teaching throughout the whole school. We do continue to teach the learning outcomes for the Religious Education curriculum at each year level in context of these four concepts. 

  • Invite each teacher to bring their Sacrament book to the staff meeting and be prepared to share 4 key ideas related to the focus for the class level/s they are teaching.
  • Make a copy for each staff member of:
