The curriculum used in CRE programmes is educationally sound and uses the students’ interests and experience as a starting point in allowing them to learn by exploration and discovery. Lessons are non-sectarian and respect students’ existing faith commitment.

CEC currently endorses the New Zealand written and published ‘Life Choices’ curriculum only.

We encourage schools to keep a copy of the curriculum materials in their reception area for interested parents to view.
