Religious Education

“I have come that you may have life, and have it to the full” John 10:10

It contributes to the personal reflection and development of each young person while also highlighting the importance of respect for all beliefs and traditions.

These cover topics such as –the meaning of life; human rights; world religions; morality; love and relationships. They have the opportunity to take part in debates; listen to guest speakers and use ICT facilities to research and gather information on various topics.
