St Columb's has had a longstanding involvement in Hawthorn's primary schools, dating back to the 1870's. Some from our congregation take Christian Religious Instruction classes at Auburn South and Glenferrie Primary schools.
The curriculum used is material created by ACCESS Ministries (formerly the Council for Christian Education in Schools) approved by the State Government for use in Victorian primary schools. All teachers have been trained and approved by Access Ministries.
We are also involved in the Kids Hope mentor program at Auburn South Primary under the supervision of World Vision Australia.
