“The pleasures arising from thinking and learning will make us think and learn all the more.” ― Aristotle, The Nicomachean Ethics
Religious Education considers the impact of beliefs over time and how it has shaped our culture, our literature, our history, our laws and our lives. Religion provokes heartfelt commitment, eloquent expression, action, and intense debate. For everyone who wants to be informed about the world around them, religion is an intensely curious phenomenon that calls out for better understanding. Religious Education incorporates religion, ethics and philosophy. We explore the world religions, pursue wisdom, spiritual truth, investigate the concept of the ineffable and the ethical foundations of societies because the breadth of the moral spectrum is vast, so a robust religious education is essential for understanding our multi-faith and multi-cultural world. It is vital that students recognise world issues such as racism, discrimination, moral dilemmas, cultural relativism, terrorism and religious persecution and understand what perspectives they have on these events. Our students will be the future of an extraordinary modern world and key to removing the hatred, prejudice and injustice that has been seen throughout world history and is still evident today.
