Atrium – Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

St Pius X has a dedicated space within the school called an “Atrium”. This is a unique hands on environment filled with sensorially rich materials for the children’s faith formation. The materials are focused on scripture and liturgy and based on the Montessori Method of Education. The formation process is known as the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd and can be found in many parishes throughout the world.

St Pius X is currently the only school in Melbourne where all the students come to the Atrium on a weekly basis. The Atrium complements and sits alongside our regular Religious Education program.
