Religious Education in the Whole School Community/Life/Day
Being a multi denominational school we welcome students from all faiths and none. As a school we seek to live by moral values, recognize the dignity of each individual and have a special concern for the poor and under privileged. The Religion department are challenged to develop a curriculum which promotes the harmonious growth of the whole person. We work with local school to promote faith development, we do this by bringing our 5th year students down to the local primary schools to participate in the Faith/friends programme we undertake. We also foster an awareness for peace and justice in society.
As a community college we are committed to the importance of formal religious and moral education. This policy allows us the opportunity to reflect on, explore and articulate what it means to be a multi-denominational community college. It is our hope and privileged to harness the religious development of our students and to provide opportunities for them to know their God.
