Christ the King School is built on the Good Samaritan tradition of education and we develop, nurture and promote our Catholic way of life to our community and beyond through our life experiences in liturgy, prayer, sacraments, community service and hope for the future.
Mass is celebrated in the Samaritan Hall on the first Friday of each month at 9:00am within school terms. Mass is an opportunity for the community to come together as students, staff, parents, families and parishioners in formal prayer.
Students and staff are involved in planning - reading, procession, singing and reflection.
Families are invited to participate in all masses and liturgies across the year and most masses are followed by a morning tea with an open invitation to all.
Whole School Liturgy
Prayer at Christ the King extends beyond mass. Prayer takes place within classrooms, staff room, assemblies and camp. More formal liturgies take place at certain times of the year - Holy Week, End of Year - Graduation, Grandfriends Day just to name a few.
Christ the King works closely with the Parish of St Joseph and the other parish school of St Teresa's to deliver a Family Based Sacramental Program as set forth in the Policy for the Initiation of Children into the Catholic Church in the diocese of Adelaide. Parents of Year 4 & 5 students attend information evenings and parent and child participate in a series of small group sessions leading up to the ceremony. Parents are welcome to discuss their child's readiness with the APRIM or parish priest.
Student and families at Christ the King School are involved in a variety of outreach programs:
